As Global director of EMI PM my role is to oversee the development of the EMI PM brands (KPM, Music House, Juice Music + many more) and the EMI PM sub publishing interests (Megatrax, Videohelper, DeWolfe + many more) throughout the world including working directly with the Sony ATV affiliate sales offices.

Previously, I was Managing Director of Imagem Production Music where I oversaw the rebranding from Boosey & Hawkes Production Music to Imagem PM, working as part of the acquisition team for Imagem's successful purchase of American publisher 5 Alarm Music and in the process launching Imagem PM Netherlands.

I managed the development of Imagem's Media catalogue, which included the BBC News and Strictly Come Dancing/Dancing With The Stars themes. I created the Boosey & Hawkes Classical library and built an extensive roster of composers from the commercial and film industries.

Prior to Imagem / Boosey & Hawkes, I ran my own music PR company, Rocketscience Media, promoting Basement Jaxx, Carl Cox, Elton John, Radiohead amongst others.

I also worked as an independent library producer for West 1 and worked for Trevor Horn at his renowned Sarm Studios
