Associate Editor for Organizational Aesthetics

Member of the editorial board for Leadership & the Humanities


My theoretical inspirations are traceable to the influences of process philosophy and general sociological questions concerning organisations and the people who work in them. Currently, I am exploring the potential of film making both to generate critical research on industry and culture and to produce a broad range of impacts on audiences from outside as well as within the academy.
