I’m a photographer by training and work heavily on embedding Flipped Learning (and by virtue Game Based Learning) within Higher Education. I’ve worked on the development of a number of games, primarily Educational Escape Rooms, and card games, whilst developing user interfaces for a number of other games used to support learning and employability.

I’m a firm believer of a co-creational approach to educational games, and strongly advocate students creating games for their peers. My role within the team is to support the programme whilst developing community engagement around Game Based Learning and Playful Learning. With that in mind, I’ve traveled near and far to help students and academics develop games and playful experiences to enhance their learning journeys. I’ve been co-author of a number of papers on Educational Escape Rooms, and have presented at a number of conferences about our experiences of embedding game based learning at Coventry University.
