Senior Technician

I joined the University in 1991 when I moved to Cornwall. My first role was to run the photography store from what later became a stores cupboard! This was pre computerisation so I had to sign everything in and out by hand. I moved on to supporting students and developed a keen interest in photography which has endured to this day. After a few years I had the chance to switch departments and so started my exploration of moving image. Since working in media I have taught sound, video and post production skills. I really enjoy working with students and learning alongside them. I have a Diploma in Higher education and am a qualified Avid trainer. I am also a qualified Reflexologist and have run parenting classes and taught Salsa. I have recently started to try to learn to draw, paint and screen print.
