The Academic

100

I’m a senior lecturer in Multiplatform Broadcast Journalism and Broadcast Media at the University of Brighton and a visiting lecturer in writing and storytelling across various courses and disciplines. I love nothing more than getting my students to work with industry professionals, talent and other students and showing them how to learn on the job, network and find out what the media world really looks like. I teach like I produce telly (and write), always looking for the most interesting and relevant way to tell a story, dig deeper and have more fun.

As an academic, my research is largely about TV chefs and their role in the British food revolution over the last 20 years.I am writing a series of articles on ‘Taste and the TV Chef’ which may become a book. Here’s one of the articles already published in Journal of Media Practice that sets the scene. http://eprints.brighton.ac.uk/9687/

My Masters in Arts and Cultural Research explores the widening chasm between those who can write and those who can’t, and looks at innovative ways of encouraging young people to write more confidently and creatively. Entitled ‘The Write Rhythm’, it looks at what we can learn from the teaching of dynamics and phrasing in Dance in performing arts schools in a unique collaboration between English and Dance departments.

I also examine the use of creative writing techniques in accessing greater creativity in business. My workshops such as ‘What’s in a Word?’ and ‘Sniffing out the Story’  are part of the University’s Economic and Social Engagement programme, as well as being available through my independent consultancy.
