About me

I am fortunate to have a successful 'portfolio career', as both an experienced writer, researcher, consultant and editor in the prevention of non-communicable diseases, and as a professional soprano.

Since 2017, I have been a freelance consultant and writer, and would welcome hearing from you about working together. Clients in 2019 include the World Obesity Federation, World Cancer Research International, the NCD Alliance, the Danish Red Cross and the World Health Organization (Europe).

Until December 2016, I was the assistant director at C3 Collaborating for Health, a London-based NGO that focuses on making it easier to be healthy by addressing the three major risk factors for ill-health: poor diet, lack of physical activity, and tobacco use. 

 

I am currently a trustee (with responsibility for health programmes) at the Sussex Cricket Foundation. I have degrees in philosophy, politics and economics (BA, Oxford University) and human rights (MSc, London School of Economics).

 

  • More about my extensive experience as a researcher,
    writer and editor is here, and read more on LinkedIn.

  • My CV is available on request.

I have been a professional singer since leaving university, and I sing with a wide variety of groups (see Singing). I am also a choral fixer, with an extensive list of singers on whom I call for engagements including weddings and recording.

 

  • If you would like to book me as a choir member or soloist,
    or would like me to organise a soloist/choir for an event,
    please contact me.

Finally, I am a reluctant runner but a keen cyclist - to date, I have cycled five Caminos (ancient pilgrimage routes) across Spain to Santiago de Compostela (see lycra-clad photo), blogging as I go. If you are interested in this, check out my biking blog here.
