My theoretical inspirations are traceable to the influences of process philosophy and general sociological questions concerning the nature and conditions of organisations and the people who work in them. Currently, I am exploring the potential of film-based creative practice research as a way of evoking concepts within the academy and to have influence upon people outside universities.
