Whether giving singing workshops or writing – one way and another I’ve been passionate about liberating others to realise their true purpose and I mentored the street artist Stik from homelessness to international recognition and acclaim.

My latest book ‘Organizing for Creative People’ is out in May 2017. It’s the perfect guide to setting up the essential physical and ‘headspace’ infrastructure that will allow any creative person to thrive in their chosen career.
