About me

I am a highly creative and passionate music educator, project manager and freelance music industry professional. Having studied at Goldsmiths, University of London for both my BMus in Popular Music and MMus in Creative Practice, I now run the university’s record label in collaboration with renowned electronic musician Matthew Herbert. As part of this, I run a number of masterclasses and workshops for artists and am also a practicing experimental pop musician, improviser and sound artist. I have a wide range of transferrable skills and expertise including management, design, web development and digital content creation. I also have a deep passion for fashion and clothing design, developing my own designs and clothes in my spare time and taking bespoke and couture commissions.
