Originally from Stockport, Jamie studied English literature at Sheffield University where he also completed his masters and was awarded his PhD.
Jamie has been teaching at Solent University since 2003 and is co-course leader of media culture and production, where he teaches on all three levels. Jamie's academic research interests dovetail with his teaching. He is especially interested in approaching media from a business, governmental and economic perspective and how such frameworks shape the work of practitioners in the field.
Outside of work, Jamie's interests are in keeping up-to-speed with recent cinema, yoga and making his own films.
