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.
