BSc, MSc, PhD, PGCed


I have worked at the University since 2003 teaching AutoCAD, overtime this developed and I now teach a variety of software packages and topics around 3D – 7D BIM software and the processes.

I have always loved learning new software packages and enjoy giving others the opportunity to do the same.

Outside of work I train for OCRS, the muddied the better, I do lots of DIY at my own home and for family members and enjoy Kayaking.


I started my experience of software at an Architect company where I was employed as an Interior Designer during my sandwich year, on returning to my studies I continued working part time.

During studies for my PhD I worked as a designer and CAD Technician and have since have worked with the local council to develop several models on the regeneration of Pontypridd Town and Pontypridd Lido.
