I am a social psychologist, lecturer, teacher, counsellor and graphic designer. My main interests are subsumed by the rubric of symbolic exchange, which in practice this means that I am interested in power dynamics, especially leadership, group dynamics and influence. This relates directly to my graphic interests in symbolism, symbology, graphic imagery and the many ways in which people seek to record and express their ideas especially in writing. The two approaches are neatly captured by my ongoing interests in religious forms, politics and history.
