About me & my work:

The work stuff is that I look after the Sales, Marketing and Product Management departments of Biamp Systems, a leading global manufacturer of professional AV equipment for fixed installation. I've been working in this industry for several decades and my main role is planning strategy for our company and looking at long-term trends.

I am a long-standing member of the TED community and a mentor to the TED fellows as well as a speaker host and advisor on sound and technology.

The combination of work and TED has led to some fun collaborations such as work on the Mi-Mu gloves and Listening Chair with Imogen Heap, a book and lectures with Julian Treasure, with with Imaginary Numbers in Amsterdam and most recently a deep fulfilling technology collaboration with the amazing work being done at Shared Studios especially around the Portals (see below for details).

I also mentor for other organizations and co-founded our Charitable Leadership Group, supporting local, national and international causes. I am a lover of life, a musician, dancer, photographer and graphic design (I have made money doing all of the above) and originally a research Chemist. I love food, wine, music, travel, my family and meeting new people, although I'm an English introvert so that's always a struggle initially!
