I am a retired graphic designer having worked in leading advertisiing agencies and with my own company for 35 years. My lectures are Graphic Design based where art is used for a defined purpose. I have always been involved in research to understand better communcation and each of my subjects have had a lifetime of research which I use to create fascinating, entertaining and educational hour lectures.
I am a Collector, Historian and Lecturer and specialise in Children's Publications and 1930s documentary films. I have had nationwide exhibitions on the 1950s Eagle and Dan Dare, I am a recognised author on Rupert from the Daily Express, publisher of many Social History books and having worked on Royal Mail Education I have a speciality in 1930s documentary films.
My talks are highly graphic and have a vintage film content.
Currently I am an accredited Arts Society lecturer. I have in Feb 2018 completed a tour of Cyprus for U3A and am also a speaker for local WI and Historical Societies. I speak at National Conventions on Dan Dare and Rupert.
