My working life started in theatre stage management but then I decided to swap city life for the countryside and took a year’s course in farming, bookkeeping and secretarial skills.
I moved to Dorset in 1981 and was able to bring a lifetime of skills and my interests in the arts together, working in an administrative/accounting role for a number of Dorset-based arts organisations. I have worked for b-side since 2012 and have loved seeing it grow and flourish since its beginnings in 2010.
In my spare time I am also an Environmental Sound Artist, combining my loves of walking, photography and sound to create audio visual projects at my studio, Electric Backroom, in Symondsbury.
