Biography

I have worked as a journalism lecturer since 2011, delivering a range of modules in both undergraduate and postgraduate
programmes. Modules I have taught are: Radio News, TV News, Radio
Bulletins, Social Media, Introduction to Broadcast Journalism (ML), Business Journalism and more. I also supervise BA and MA students working on their Major Projects and Dissertations. Currently, I am Programme Leader for BA Journalism at Edinburgh Napier.

I have been a journalist for more that 30 years and although I have done reporting and writing for television, print and online, I am first and foremost a radio journalist. I have worked in local, regional and national radio, including 15 years with BBC Radio - World Service and domestic channels.
