BMus (Hons), FASC, MISM

I've been involved with church life since I was at primary school: originally as a member of the Saturday Club at St Margaret's, later joining the Youth Choir and enjoying many years of youth outreach programmes, social events and Youth Alpha courses.

Since then, I've assisted at - and latterly coordinated - holiday clubs, engineered and produced CDs of carol services, deputised as organist and choir trainer at both churches, advised on and administered the installation of new church sound systems, and generally helped wherever I've felt able. In 2006 I was Confirmed by the then Bishop of Rochester, Michael Nazir-Ali, and local village life has always played a significant part in my upbringing.

Having graduated from Royal Holloway, University of London in 2014, I am now a full-time freelance musical director, pianist, arranger and teacher, and so Sunday mornings are not necessarily as free as I would like! But aside from music, I've always had a keen interest in technology, and so enjoy looking after the website for our two churches.
