My first career was as a professional musician.  I performed the piano as well as taught music in a wide variety of educational settings and also published articles on Mozart, music theory and many other subjects. I now combine performing the piano (click here for further details) and teaching and writing about music with my coaching work.  I find the two complement each other well.

I have sat on the boards of a conservatoire of music, as deputy chair, and a large music festival and am involved in various music-education initiatives including holding a research position in the music department at King’s College, London.

Following my musical training and first career, I worked for over two decades as a transactional lawyer in a large city law firm.  I became a senior partner running my own group, specialising in finance and capital markets. I do some consultancy work for my firm, including facilitating business skills assessment courses for lawyers.
