I am a music producer, event organiser and adviser to the creative industries and voluntary sector. In recent years I have worked for The Touring Network (Highlands & Islands) firstly as Membership Officer for Argyll & Bute then latterly as a freelance associate delivering on a programme of membership support. I am currently on the board of voluntary trustees. Previously I worked as an Arts Development Coordinator for the Highlands and Islands at HI~Arts. I worked throughout the 1990s as a professional musician and composer principally with one of Scotland’s most highly acclaimed Scottish Gaelic bands Capercaillie, and continued my music career thereafter as a composer for television (with commissions for BBC Scotland, Animal Planet and Discovery) and as a music workshop leader. I co-founded Wild Biscuit Music in 20000.
