I teach Music Management. I have a background as a (largely) DIY songwriter and performer. I co-founded and help run Sheffield-based independent label Hudson Records and am further involved in Sheffield music as an occasional gig promoter and member of the board of the Sheffield Creative Guild.

I am a graduate of Bretton Hall College (Leeds University) where I studied Popular Music Studies in the mid-nineties. Since then I have released a number of albums, EPs and singles of my own original compositions and have toured this material extensively in the UK and also overseas.

I’m currently most interested in exploring the future of the music industries and the opportunities for music makers and music managers to be proactive in shaping this future.
