I live in Oxford and work as a freelance arts consultant and fundraiser for arts charities. Closely connected to Oxford Lieder and its annual two-week Festival each October, I also work to advise and help develop the work and outreach of other performing arts organisations and ensembles, including Music of Life, a charity for musically-talented children and young adults with disabilities. I initiated the founding of the Oxford Music Network in 2006, a collaboration between several of Oxford's professional music organisations.
