What brought you to New York?

I came to NY to get my MA in Music Business from NYU and to get the experience of working in NYC. I arrived and thought oh my goodness I have found my place; I love these people! Very direct and to the point but also kind and helpful.

 

What do you enjoy about being a member of St. George’s Society?

As much as I love living here it is great to know that you have support in many forms from St. George’s Society, be it socializing, sharing news and information from home in the UK or even assistance when things get tough.

What is your favorite New York place or pastime?

In addition to my love for producing/marketing theatre and music, I love dance; working in it and also doing it; so the amazing teachers and classes that are available in NYC is such a joy to me and so dance is my favorite pastime.

What brought you to New York?

The chance to take up the Headship of the British International School was too good an opportunity to miss & I am looking forward to helping chart the next stage in the school’s development.  It is also a great chance for me to pursue further my passion for American History.

What do you enjoy about being a member of St George’s Society?

The diversity of interests, backgrounds and careers among the membership is fascinating and it is also lovely to meet others with an interest in the UK and Anglo-American links.

What is your favourite New York place or pastime?

It’s too early for me to declare a favourite, but I have enjoyed exploring the Metropolitan Museum even more than I anticipated and the Morgan Library is also becoming a favourite place to spend time.  In terms of pastimes, I’m doing my best to cultivate an enjoyment of the gym to offset the threat posed by the number of great restaurants in the city.
