This month I finish my job at Oxford Brookes University teaching Media, Journalism and Publishing, and Digital Publishing. It’s been an incredible three years, with each semester offering new challenges. I’ve had the opportunity to create and deliver a 12-week design and technology module from scratch, engineer a remote networking event involving over 150 students and professionals, and work with some of the leading thinkers in publishing and journalism.

As for what’s next, I’m not sure. The pandemic is throwing a few spanners in the works, but I’m confident that what faces me is a world of opportunity. In the meantime, I’m 20 books into my history project, which you can read about here.
