I graduated with a BA(Hons) Interior Design in 2001. Following this I worked for some time as a Freelance Designer on bar and restaurant projects whilst teaching on an F.E. National Diploma course at Dewsbury College. I now hold a full-time post at the University of Huddersfield and use my industry experience and background to support the students learning.
