I'm an audio producer making programmes and podcasts for broadcast and beyond.
Recently, I've made features about Choral Singing, William Blake and William Langland, Lewis Carroll's connection to the North East of England, the possibility, or otherwise, of measuring art and the most notorious painting to hang in a public gallery, Gustav Courbet's L'Origine du Monde.
In 2017 I won bronze in the "Best Arts / Music Doc / Feature Maker" category at the Audio Production Awards.
In the past I've created work for the BBC, as a producer on Radio 3’s Arts and Ideas programme Night Waves / Free Thinking, and have curated more than twenty editions of the poetry and music programme Words and Music on themes ranging from Blood, through The Sublime, the idea of Constraint, to Apples. As well as Something Understood, for broadcast on Radio 4 I've made Soul Music and worked as an abridger (Sounds Like London, Book of the Week).
I also created and produced live ideas events for the annual Free Thinking Festival about alien life and the singularity; the cultural resonance of the North East's 3 great rivers and the battle of tragedy and comedy.
I work with organisations, artists and institutions including The British Museum and Royal London Hospital Museum making audio guides and walks and am three years into editing the most extraordinary oral history archive: Voices of British Ballet. I'm currently working on a new podcast series with Matthew Bannister: Folk on Foot and making Books at Bedtime for BBC Radio 4.
My collaboration with QMUL Centre for the History of Emotions has developed out of a BBC Radio 3 Sunday Feature about weeping as a response to art: Margaret, Are You Grieving?
In 2014 I made a series of 3 podcasts about Water, Weather and Weeping inspired by the artist Clare Whistler's residency at the Centre and an audio piece with the Centre and the History of Bio-Medicine Research Group about Seasonal Affective Disorder.
