Academia

Interviewing legendary Science Fiction author George Clayton Johnson at the 2009 Rod Serling Conference in Ithaca, New York. A dream come true!
For me, that is; George probably wasn’t all that fussed.

After graduating from the University of Sunderland with a BA in Media Production and an MA in Film and Cultural Studies, I have been fortunate enough to work alongside several gifted academics in my capacity as a visiting lecturer with that institution’s Centre for Research in Media and Cultural Studies. I’ve also dipped my toes into the heady world of academic conferences. Boy, you wouldn’t believe some of the wild parties that follow those gigs; sometime’s we don’t even go to be until 10pm!
