I'm the lead contact for the Great Place England Programme evaluation team at BOP Consulting. As a Senior Consultant at BOP, I work on a range of strategy, research and evaluation projects across the cultural and creative industries, for public sector and commercial organisations, strategic and funding bodies, in the UK and beyond. I'm always happy to back be in the heritage fold as my background is in archive film; I'm also a former HLF grantee, having designed a major project for London's Screen Archives to develop the city's collection of archive film, including working with diverse communities, and building a small travelling cinema which is still on tour! My current interests are in place-making, regional planning and infrastructure support for the cultural sector.
