Current positions

Learning Technologist/Instructional Designer


I am a learning technologist/instructional designer with agency and higher education experience. I love bringing learning and technology together to broaden access to opportunity, because I think it’s one of the ways we can change the world.

I’m originally from South Africa, but have been living in Greater Manchester since late 2019.

I have contributed to module and course design for various contexts, including compliance training, financial engineering, and computer science (where I’m based now). I’ve also contributed chapters in various university-level textbooks.

I support colleagues to deliver their learning and teaching using considered pedagogical practices and the available teaching tools to their best advantage.


I lecture and assess project management for level 4 Computer Science and Computer Networks students (Professional Development and Practices).

Research Interests
