I am currently working for an EdTech scale up as a Data Coach. Prior to that I was a Research Fellow at a UK University. My research explored contemporary popular music reception practices and the role of digital, data and Internet technologies on the business and cultural environments of music consumption. This research was built around the development of The Harkive Project (, an online, crowd-sourced method of generating data from music consumers about their everyday relationships with music and technology. I was also the co-Managing Editor of Riffs: Experimental Research on Popular Music ( and the Project Co-ordinator on the AHRC-funded Songwriting Studies Network. 

Outside of work, I continue to build on my 20+ years of working in the business of popular music, working as digital catalogue manager for Static Caravan Recordings and as a musician and recording artist with Independent Country. I live in Birmingham, England, with my wife and sons and an unruly dog, and when not working I enjoy collecting records, following Aston Villa, and developing skills related to data science.
