I studied music at university and have spent most of my working life in the professional music sector. I run my own consultancy which covers music education policy; event and project management; operations and governance; organisational change and strategic development. I currently hold roles with the Association of British Orchestras, PRS for Music Foundation and Sound and Music. I enjoy using my extensive professional network to match people with ideas and to develop creative solutions.
I am an active musician, singing backing vocals with a country and western band; and I am an active consumer of the arts, in particular new music, theatre, art and so on.
I became a Trustee of Awards for Young Musicians because I believe that all children and young people should have the opportunity to develop and realise their potential and talent and I am proud to be part of an organisation that provides support, information and guidance to enable them to do so.
