I have a background as a practicing furniture designer for both production and limited edition. I have 19 years of experience of lecturing, teaching and mentoring in various contexts from Higher education through to community based projects. I am a director of a North East based Art and Design Community Project (www.kidskabin.org.uk)

I am an admirer of: the work of Hans J. Wegner, the enterprise of Yvon Chouinard, the novels of Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö, Oslo’s Frogner park, the words of my sons and the lyrics of Bruce Springsteen.
