I have worked for many arts organisations and educational services such as cfbt as a creative practitioner. I have extensive experience co-ordating events, previous clients include Boots, BP Oil, Chorus Regal and Hilton Hotels, music/spoken word events include Mansfield's Art Cafe, NCC Stand & Deliver at The Maze and Forever Green Live.

​​I was Poet In Residence for Starbucks Coffee Company ​and during ​this time I performed and ran workshops in their coffee houses for the general public.  Starbucks also ​sponsored my work in schools as a part of their literature programme and in particular gave me a very memorable and rewarding placement as Poet In Residence at Portland Training College, Notts.

I particularly enjoy working with musicians/singers which     prompted me to set up The Lyric Room. 

If you are interested in a workshop please get in touch.
