Hello, I'm Jay:

 🎓 Academic Tutor, University of Sunderland
 📻 Occasional BBC Radio 4 / 4 Extra documentaries
 🎨 Passionate about creative narrative audio

Jay has been teaching at the University of Sunderland as an Academic Tutor since 2015, where he specialises in audio production workshops - drama, documentary, podcasting.
As a freelance audio producer, Jay’s work often explores the intersection of art and audio - whether exploring Sunderland artist Stephanie Smith's tactile practice of 'skin-mapping' (Drawing in the Dark, BBC Radio 4), investigating how writing has seeped into the landscape and heritage of Weardale (Ten Words for a Northern Landscape, New Writing North), or celebrating independent bookshops through community creative writing workshops (Hills Are Alive, Norfolk Street Arts).
