Music SupervisorLondon, United Kingdom
About me
I'm an award winning music supervisor, based in London. My life has always revolved around music. I was brought up by a family of well known musicians and carved out a successful career in the music industry, at Universal and Sony Music with roles globally including London, Milan, and New York. As a music supervisor, I won a FIPA Gold 2016 for best music for WalltoWall’s “The Scandalous Lady W”, and was nominated at Music & Sound Awards for work on a Wilkinson Sword commercial. My recent projects include BBC1 mini series “Little Women” and a Sonia Rykiel commercial directed by Zoe Ghertner. I hold a mathematics degree from Edinburgh University and an MBA from U.C Berkeley, and also studied Music Supervision at Berklee College of Music. Naturally marrying creative and business mindsets, I'm as comfortable talking music with artists as structuring and negotiating complex license agreements.
