I am an allround consultant and researcher with a background in music, media and the arts. In my work, I combine many years of academic research (at the Universities of Amsterdam and Cambridge) with a broad experience as a consultant, writer, and researcher in the cultural sector.

Between 2012 and 2019, I obtained my PhD at the University of Amsterdam and worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Faculty of Music and Corpus Christi College, University of Cambridge. In my research, I explore the relations between music, sound, and media from the nineteenth century to the present.

Over the years, I published extensively on music and popular culture, both academically and for wider audiences. I also perform and record as a musician.
