About

Along with my co-producer Uzma Mir-Young I make audio and video content for broadcast and broadband. Originally a head of Technical and Vocational education in a secondary school, I also taught English, Drama and Media Studies. I bought my first Sinclair Spectrum in 1982 and have been trying to get out of the dungeon ever since. I spent 17 years at the BBC making and commissioning educational TV, Radio and Online for children and teenagers. I’m also interested in counselling – currently at Level 3, and personal and skills development for all ages. I think lifelong learning should be taken more seriously.

I like education, which I think is one of the keys to happiness for all. I enjoy using technology to foster creativity and a more empowered society at all levels. I also like family life, walking and thinking.

I became a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 2008.

We’re currently in production making poetry for teenagers on BBC2’s Learning Zone and innovative video for BBC Scotland
This is Talkie Time for 4-6 year olds. A unique theatrical event inspiring playful learning
