Born and raised in and around London, I have been working in the music industry for eight years; including time at one of the worlds leading music publishers, getting our music placed into TV, film, games, adverts and more. I have also been involved in The Unsigned Music Awards, acting as a judge for the Best Blues & Jazz and Best Country & Folk categories, as well as appearing on BBC1's The Apprentice as a "music expert" in 2020.
I have a passion for music of all genres, travel, history, reading and writing, animals and the environment. I can play guitar and piano and have recently completed work on my first, and likely only, book: Together Through Life; My Never Ending Tour with Bob Dylan.
