I am a musician, a teacher, a writer and an academic-projects manager.
Maybe I can help you?
I have many years of experience as a university-based project manager responsible for delivering all aspects of financial management, HR processes, social media, digital and print communications, stakeholder liaison and UK and overseas events and travel management. I have supported project leaders who are specialists across a wide variety of academic disciplines: fine art, modern-language studies, gender & sexuality, history, liteature, museum studies, music, politics, sociology, theatre & theology. I am experienced in book and journal editing and working with online publishing platforms, and have a successful record of promptly delivering project outputs, both in print and online, whether commercial or open-access. From March 2016-July 2018 I worked alongside Professor Anthony Bale (Executive Dean of Arts, Birkbeck, University of London) to establish and manage his Leverhulme-funded International Networks project Pilgrim Libraries: books & reading on the medieval routes to Jerusalem & Rome, and organising conferences in London, New York and Rome. From the start of September 2018 to the end of November 2018 I am managing the UCL Institute of the Americas’ busy portfolio of events and communications activities during a period of extended staff absence.
I am also a musician and a teacher. I studied organ performance and choral conducting on the Advanced Post-graduate Perfomers course at the Royal Academy of Music (University of London) and have a PhD in historical musicology (Goldsmiths, University of London) as well as a Masters degree in Liturgical Music (APU Cambridge), a Bachelors degree in Education (University of Winchester) with Qualified Teacher Status (more …) and diplomas from the Royal College of Music (ARCM: organ performance with honours) and the Royal Academy of Music (LRAM: organ teaching).
As a project-focussed church musician I work with Anglican and Catholic parishes that seek immediate short-term practical support for liturgical music, and with those seeking to develop a longer-term realistic vision for sustainable musical liturgy.
