Originally from Durham, I graduated in September 2009 with an MA in International History from The University Of Sheffield. Since then, I have worked in a variety of cultural sector jobs around Yorkshire and the north-east, before joining Sinfonia Viva in August 2012 as Education Project Manager.

In my spare time, I play trumpet for 12-piece hip-hop group Renegade Brass Band, as well as drawing and painting, getting out walking in the Peak District, surfing when near the coast, and is currently struggling to learn Spanish.
