I am an independent consultant in online learning and discovery. I've worked for clients that have included learndirect, Trades Union Congress and the British Standards Institute. I've written on music and technology for Five Eight, The Spectator and Music Ally. I advised the National Centre for Popular Music (now defunct) as part of their Exhibitory Education Advisory Group, and have created online reference resources for communities of music fans, including the wiki reference site for the cult album 69 Love Songs.
Before setting up my own business twelve years ago, I was a Principal Psychologist in a unit that is now split between the Department for Work and Pensions and the Department for Education. I am registered as a Chartered Psychologist (C.Psychol) with the British Psychological Society and as a Certified Member of the Association for Learning Technology (CMALT).
I am a life fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. I have held board positions in arts charities and technology companies, including Wired Workplace Ltd, which I co-founded. I hold degrees from the Universities of Cambridge, Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam.
