I am an Assistant Lecturer and Ph.D student at Birmingham City University. I graduated with a Masters in Environmental and Spatial Planning in 2014, and have 3 years of experience working for a UK Planning consultancy.
My teaching specialises in Planning practice, placemaking, stakeholder engagement and professional development. I have 2 years teaching experience, and have been involved in student experience research since 2012.
My Ph.D. focuses on the impacts and cycles of studentification and de-studentification, and the methods by which these processes can be used to support the creation and enhancement of sustainable communities. I formally commenced my Ph.D. in February 2018.
They say those who can’t do teach. In this case, those who can’t race commentate! I am co-owner and lead commentator for RaceSpot TV, the largest Sim Racing broadcaster in the world today.
I have 8 years media experience starting off as a presenter on my Student Radio station where I became their Head of Music for 2 years. I started commentary work in 2011, before co-founding RaceSpot TV in 2014.
My work has seen me commentate some of the biggest events in Sim Racing, working with partners including NASCAR, IndyCar, McLaren, Mazda, and more. I act as the brand manager for RaceSpot TV, and also help support new commentary talent through training and advice.
