Current positions

Lecturer in Digital Media


After a 15-year career as a brand and content marketing specialist, Noel is now putting all his experience into leading the specialist Digital Video Production and Marketing BA at University of Salford.

Starting his creative career as a copywriter, Noel branched out into design, podcasting, animation, video, and social media at agencies large and small, servicing clients like Nintendo, Lloyds Banking Group, EE, Aldi, and Velux. As Head of Content at Manchester Met, he explored life ‘client side’, before realising a long-term goal of moving into academia in Spring ‘22.

Having spent his earlier (child-free) years writing and podcasting about film – publishing his first book Adventures in VHS in 2016 – Noel is hoping to return to this passion in the new year, through his research into the fascinating history of movie marketing, and its changing face in the age of digital media and streaming services.
