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 had always been involved in music throughout my time at Bedales, playing in the orchestras and singing in the choirs.

After graduating, 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 scout role at RCA (Sony Music) record label. After Sony, I went on to consult at Decca Records (Universal Music) and a music management company called SB Management. I am now an A&R Manager at AWAL/Kobalt, working with up-and-coming musical talent.

During my time at Bedales, I really took advantage of the amazing art, music, drama etc on offer. Being around so many creative people definitely inspired me to get involved in an arts/media career.
