Teaching Experience I have always enjoyed and developed my teaching career as I find it hugely stimulating. I believe I am a good communicator with valuable experience to pass on and also am capable of motivating and inspiring. Most notable teaching experience is at the National Film & Television School, the UK始s leading film school. I have worked there as a Visiting Senior Lecturer since 2006 rising to Acting Head of Production in absence of Head of Production Karin Bamborough. Have also taught at Salford University, Leeds Met University, Sheffield Hallam University and the Bournemouth Film School.
