I originally studied at Swansea Metropolitan University where I graduated with a BA in Leisure Management and an MSc in Leisure and Tourism Resource Management.  I then worked in Events Section of the City and County of Swansea where I was involved in the staging of events such as Proms in the Park, Escape in the Park, Swansea Air Show, Swansea Bay 10K, Race for Life and many more.  Other achievements include a charity cycle ride through Egypt to raise money for an orphanage in Luxor.  My research interests are with events and tourism and outside interests include down-hill mountain biking, swimming and art.
