I have a unique way of thinking which is a combination of my technical, practical mindset, my own creative practice of music & photography and my unusual work background. This will stand you in good stead, whatever one of my services you employ me for.
After doing my BA (hons.) in Theatre studies (a mainly academic degree, with some stage management, design and lighting design) I went straight into working in IT and technology for ten years delivering marketing and PR. I felt like this wasn’t the right world for me, and so I retrained as a teacher, gaining my PGCE in 2010. I mainly worked in FE teaching English and Theatre Studies, however I realised that I missed using my business, organisation and strategic thinking skills. I achieved an MA in Arts Administration and Cultural Policy from Goldsmiths University of London in 2012.
I can write and speak on any of the topics I talk about on my blog including: the arts; arts management; arts education; bringing business skills and outlook to the arts; creative thinking in business; developing a creative practice; being a freelancer; disability and chronic illness.
