Programme Leader - Creative Entrepreneurship
I am currently lecturing on the MA in Creative Entrepreneurship at LCCM. For CLOCK, an open-curriculum qualification, I am a sector expert in the cultural industries and a peer reviewer. I am completing training as a Green Festival Awards Assessor for A Greener Festival.
I am an occasional music journalist writing features for magazines.
I am a taiko drummer. Taiko is a spectacular Japanese full body form with big drums and big movements. We play at festivals in Devon where I live. I am an active Buddhist.
Until July 2018 I had been a senior lecturer in commercial music at the University of Westminster for about 20 years and before that I have been a music industry journalist for magazines such as Music Week and Audience, a touring and recording musician on guitar, synthesizers and saxophone and the general manager of a small record label.
My Bachelor's degree is a Joint Honours in Communications Studies and Sociology from Goldsmiths and my Masters is in Music Business Management from Westminster
