Old Bedalian 2008

After I left Bedales, I went on to study Music at The University of Edinburgh, graduating with a 2:1 BA (Hons). 

I then moved to Madrid for a year, where I was an English Language Assistant in a primary school. This was a programme through the British Council, which I discovered through fellow OBs. It was amazing - something I would definitely recommend to those looking to learn a new language or live abroad. 

After a year in Madrid, I moved to London to begin working in the music industry. This was a struggle, as most start-out roles in the industry are unpaid/very low wages, but after a few dead-end jobs and some good luck, I ended up landing an A&R role at Sony Music record label (part of their A&R Academy). I'm now currently an A&R Consultant for Decca Records (Universal Music) and living in London.

Bedales has an amazing network of contacts, especially within the arts, so anyone looking to get into those fields should definitely make use of that network if they can.
