I joined Sinfonia Viva in January 2022, in a role which combines my commitment to making orchestral music as accessible and relevant as possible, and my love of the orchestral repertoire.

I read music at the University of York, and completed an MA in the History of Film Music at the University of Leeds before starting my career at a community arts organisation in Doncaster.

In 2005 I began working for Live Music Now, a national charity supporting emerging professional musicians across all genres, and enabling people who were least likely to be able to access high quality live music to have performances in their schools, care settings, day centres and hospitals. In 2012 I became Acting Executive Director of Live Music Now UK, having previously worked within the Yorkshire & Lincolnshire Branch of the charity.

In 2014 I became the Director of Learning & Engagement at the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra where I was responsible for the running of the Symphonic Choruses, CBSO Youth Orchestra, and all the educational, family and community concerts, creative projects, and partnerships.  

I am also a Trustee of Accessible Arts and Media, an inclusive music charity based in York.
