I’m a teacher, lecturer, reporter, producer, writer, company director, audio maker and host/presenter. My practical experience as an arts reporter across all the arts, means that I have heard many career stories and questioned celebrity artists as well as rising creatives about the development of their work.
As a creativity coach, I’ve trained at New York University and taken courses with Dr Eric Maisel. My work as a coach is an extension of what I have learned as a media employer, artist and teacher for three decades. As a resident of many cities including Singapore, Sydney, London, Chicago and New York, I understand multiple cultures and ideologies.
I was executive producer in radio drama at ABC, Australia.
My company Corporation For Independent Media was established in 2005. CIM is a hub for creativity coaching, audio production, PR, media lecturing, consulting and mentoring. I collaborate with writers, dramatists, poets, actors, designers, composers, musicians, recording engineers and photographers in New York, Chicago and London.
I have been a broadcaster and producer for the BBC (Radio 2, 3, 4 and World Service) for over 25 years. I worked freelance, on contract as my company was awarded guaranteed on air time.
I was the Senior Producer of the pilot phase of Studio 360, the Peabody award winning national arts show and was Senior Arts Producer and a live events host at New York Public Radio for 6 years. I freelance for ABC, CBC and NPR. Many of my non-fiction shows are available on Audible.
I produce, write, narrate and direct documentaries and fiction for radio and podcast.
