- Arts or sciences?
- The fusion of both. My favourite quote right now combines science, art and philosophy and is something that particularly resonated when I trained to become a coach: “Learn your theories as well as you can, but put them aside when you touch the miracle of the living soul.” – Carl Jung
- What's your daytime job?
- I’m the MD of a coach training business and a practising systemic team coach specialising in working with teams leading organisations. I am attracted towards and tend to attract teams who are struggling to work well together but who desperately want to and don’t know how.
- When and where did you start singing?
- My first memory of singing is in my primary school choir and a solo in the nativity play (I was a bull).
- What's your favourite choral piece of music?
- No straight answer on this I’m afraid as too much to choose from. Most things Howells, Vaughan-Williams, Purcell, Byrd, all things Bach and so much else. As a choir member I love anything that feels like it will be challenging to learn and perform well.
- What are your hobbies?
- Varied. I’m a member of the cloud appreciation society, love photography, dabble with windsurfing and kite surfing and enjoy spending time with family and friends.
- Wine, beer or spirits?
- I’m a lightweight as a drinker, but when under significant peer pressure will veer towards wine. My alcoholic guilty pleasure is a well-made ‘Old Fashioned’.
- What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?
- I suspect much faster than my ability to come up with anything more entertaining than the genius of Monty Python.
