A Swansea Jack born and bred, after finishing my law degree I started work in the Department of Applied Social Studies working on the Approved Social Worker Programme and delivered sessions to social workers on mental health law. I moved to the Law Department in 2002 and I am now the module director for Medical Law and Reproduction Law and teach on the Tort and Contract law modules. I am also the Director of Employability for the College.

I love being part of the College and the wider University community. I am lucky to have an incredibly varied job that allows me to interact not only with students and colleagues but also members of the legal profession and partners as far afield as Ontario, Canada.
