I am a Senior Lecturer in Media Production at the University of the West of England (UWE), with research interests related to the role and function of occulture. Editor of the recent volume Trans- States: The Art of Crossing Over (2019); I have also published on Crowley, solar symbolism and narrative, and open-source occultism. I am currently undertaking a practice-based PhD entitled ‘Occultural Production as Re-visionary Mythmaking.’

I am the founder of Trans- States (, a transdisciplinary conference series, art, media and research project exploring occultism, mysticism, shamanism and other esoteric and spiritual practices in contemporary occulture. I am also co-founder, and editorial board member, of Monad: Journal of Transformative Practice ( a transdisciplinary, peer-reviewed, open access online journal.
