My work encompasses:
  • Furniture designed, made and shown at exhibitions and galleries.
  • Commissioned one-off design and make work and batched design and make projects.
  • Supervisory and management positions in wood based production environments,  including furniture, and joinery items for museums, retail outlets, long-term and short-term exhibitions and/or expositions, trade events, etc,  coupled with extensive experience in senior roles in the Higher Education sector.

  • Advice and guidance on timber technology issues, and occasional provision of expert opinion in legal disputes.
  • Tailored learning material for teaching sessions, lectures, speaking engagements, and seminars. Preparation for and delivery of training on a wide range of furniture related topics drawing upon my many years as a qualified professional furniture designer maker, as well as my experience working in the education sector.
