I joined the Heritage Lottery Fund in 1998 and have worked in various roles, including being the first officer to set foot in the HLF Wales office in Cardiff. I am the programme manager for the Skills for the Future and Training Bursaries grants programme and the policy adviser on skills and have been delivering the HLF targeted heritage skills grant initiatives for the last ten years. I have a degree in leisure management and tourism in which I specialised in heritage management and gained work experience in community heritage projects in the Republic of Ireland. I have since gained an MA in Heritage Management. A born and bred Londoner I have an uncanny knowledge of pubs and restaurants around the capital. I have an interest in modernist architecture and design as well a huge variety of sports.
