I began working at Falmouth university in 2005 as a part-time 3d associate lecturer on the Art Foundation and as a temporary woodwork technician in the fine art workshop, which eventually turned into a full time position. I then transferred in 2007 to fine art metalwork/kinetic sculpture technician in 2007, which is the position I still currently hold, as a senior technician.

I graduated from a fine art degree at Falmouth in 1999 and continued my practice as a kinetic sculptor exhibiting internationally, especially since the 1999 BT New contemporaries exhibition for which I was selected for - this functioned as a major stepping stone for my career in the arts.

I completed a PGCE in post compulsory education at Cornwall College in 2005 specializing in teaching fine art and have been working within the school of Art ever since.
