Brief description (personal, work, education, associations, interests): I retired as a Lecturer and Curriculum Manager of a large college after 20 years in 2009, and am now part-time Chief Executive (unpaid!) of two organisations - the British Deaf History Society and the Institute of British Sign Language, which seeks to regulate qualifications in BSL Studies.

I am an author of numerous books on British Deaf History and also Deaf Crime.

I have a passion for researching 17th & 18th Century Deaf individuals.

Ambitions for DHI: To ensure that DHI is a strong, vibrant organisation that offers a platform to those who have a interest in Deaf history to share information and preserve deaf history materials.
