About me

I’ve worked in the arts and culture sector all my life, (currently freelancing and consulting) and am passionate about the importance of arts, culture and heritage in our lives, and in our societies. And you’ll hear more about this on my blog page.

I’m also very interested in social history and family histories, and what shaped the lives of past generations that in turn has shaped us. So I’ll blog on family history from time to time, too.

And I’m a bit of a news and current affairs junkie, particularly politics. So I might occasionally have something to say about the state of things as I see them…

…and I’ll share my love of reading and writing.
