I am a visual artist, educator for Art Photography Practice and Theory, tutor for Personal Project Development, and curator of photographic exhibitions and publications.

In my work I focus on issues of 'absorptive' behavior in the public realm, leisure time geography, romanticism and landscape, memory and history.
