Biography

My undergraduate studies at the University of Edinburgh brought me to the city. I combined this with summers spent working at the Edinburgh festivals. Through the early years of the century I built up my festival experience, completed my MSc, and traveled. This provided a great platform on which to develop my academic teaching and research career with Edinburgh Napier, from 2007 on.
