I've been a digital media professional for nearly 20 years.
I've led over 150 digital design projects for clients in the business, education and third sectors and for many years I ran a digital media consultancy business (which still operates on a needs basis).
From 2008-2016 I was engaged extensively with EU research networks via Future and Emerging Technologies (FP7) pro-active initiative coordination actions: FoCAS | Awareness | Pervasive Adaptation, all of which were scored 'excellent' by the EC.
Since July 2016 I've been working as Senior Web Content Producer for the Research, Innovation & Enterprise Office - working across the university to improve both the user-experience (UX) and visibility of research outputs.
In October 2016, through the Centre for Interaction Design I began researching the inter-play of Permaculture and Digital Technology. This has led to directing, designing and building The Lions' Gate permaculture-inspired interactive gardens project at Merchiston campus.
I'm also a lecturer, currently teaching the MSc level Design Dialogues module (Semester 1) and I supervise MSc Dissertations that investigate Sustainable Interaction Design.
For many years I was the designer and Web Manager of the Robert Louis Stevenson Website.
I advise across university, business and third sectors on digital media solutions.
In praxis my craft involves - creative direction, design thinking, media production, co-operative working and project management.
