I am a qualified Student Support Adviser and have worked for MYT for about 8 years, based in schools and also delivering training and workshops to staff and students. I have previously worked in youth centres and with adults with learning difficulties. I originally studied graphic illustration and typography and for some years half-owned a pottery. I spend a lot of time with my family and I like anything associated with art and craft (except sewing) and love music, especially live, both watching and participating and go to festivals throughout the summer. I read lots, mostly fantasy, like to travel and socialise and have a somewhat alternative lifestyle.
