I studied music and composition at the University of Birmingham completing an AHRC funded Doctorate in 2008. I then worked as a freelance composer, performer and curator before being appointed as lecturer here in 2014. I have worked in arts administration and events and project management and completed a Masters in Arts and Project Management at Birmingham City University in 2011.
As a composer, my work has been performed extensively in concerts and festivals internationally. My work has been recognised through inclusion in a number of international conferences and I received an honorable mention at the 35th International Competition of Electroacoustic Music and Sonic Art, Bourges 2008. I have received a number of commissions including those from the University of Birmingham, Rosie Kay Dance Company, Birmingham Hippodrome, Jazzlines and PRS Women in Music.
