I have worked since 2005 at the University of Kent, Canterbury, as Senior Lecturer in Hispanic Studies, following associate lectureships at the Universities of Exeter and Aberdeen.
I am one of the founding members of the Centre for Myth, Cosmology and the Sacred, an exciting new initiative arising out of the MA Myth, Cosmology and the Sacred that ran for many years at Canterbury Christ Church University.
I am co-founder and Deputy Chair of the Canterbury Climate Action Partnership (CCAP), an independent not-for-profit Community Interest Company mobilising action towards a more sustainable, clean and biodiverse future.
I am author of books and articles on Latin American cultural and political history, Cuban literature, Borges, Swedenborg, mysticism, psychedelics, the Imaginal, Faery, angelology, and the Daimonic.
