About me

I am a social psychologist by training and worldview, with an interest in theoretical, philosophical, conceptual and historical issues. Also, I've a background in the Arts. I read for a degree in Fine Art (sculpture) at St Martins School of Art in London (1970s). I dropped out and worked outside the Ivory Towers of academia: have even done cold selling, probably the hardest job I ever did. My current interestt is in psychology and the arts.

Area of expertise

I've carried out doctoral-level research on the use of imagination by former captives whilst held in solitary confinement. I carried this out though interviews and textual analysis of the genre of captivity.

I'm developing work in the field of psychology and the arts and working on local partnerships and collaborations with arts' organistaions.
