I have held teaching positions at Central Saint Martins School of Art (MRes Fine Art), Goldsmiths College of Art (MFA) and Kingston University (Art and Design History and Philosophy). I am an Honorary Lecturer at Exeter University.

I have a PhD in Philosophy, from the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy, Middlesex University, and Postgraduate and Undergraduate degrees in Fine Art (Painting) from the Royal College of Art and Chelsea College of Art.

I have exhibited my work in London, Europe and India. My work is held in Asia House, London, the Sammlung Essl Collection, Vienna, and several private collections across the UK.  I have extensive experience as a freelance writer, editor and reviewer for several leading art journals, and publications, and my writing has appeared in Contemporary, Modern Painters, and Tate Etc. I was Visual Arts Editor for Kultureflash and What's On in London, between 2007-2010. 

At ECA, I am currently responsible for coordinating 1st year Visual Culture programme. I am Tutor in Painting for 5th year MAFA students. I also teach on the Post Graduate Contemporary Art Theory degree, and across the Visual Culture programme, including at PhD level.

My book, 'Tintoretto's Difference' is under contract with Bloomsbury Academic. For further details of my research, please visit my Research page.
