About me

I joined a fledgling MITC in early 2020, after fifteen years spent working in the music business. Throughout those years, I developed a keen interest in the way mental health intersects with the very particular stressors and challenges of working in music. Upon leaving the industry, I knew that supporting the wellbeing of those within it would be my focus, and – alongside my work looking after the nuts and bolts at MITC HQ – I am training to become a psychotherapist at Regent’s University in London.

My background

I began my career in music back in 2004, and took every job going – from artist management to venue rep to press, before I eventually ended up on tour for two years, working as the assistant tour manager on a couple of global tours. From there, I became an assistant agent at the booking agency ITB, before graduating to agent and spending seven years looking after touring artists at CAA.

Working with me

I am still a while away from working directly with clients – but watch this space!
