Self description

Male , 34

I currently work in the music industry, both at a record label and at an arts organisation. I have worked in the area for 3 years. I got where I am through work experience and completing a degree at university.

At university I studied Film and Television and achieved a 1st class honours degree. I was also a member of the university radio station and had close connections with a number of university groups.

I am currently working towards returning to university to study medicine. I have completed a first aid course and currently volunteer as a first aider and am completing work experience at hospitals and within the community. I am hoping to volunteer overseas in a community development project in the close future.

I live with my girlfriend of 3 years and have a 1 year-old cat in a lovely rented flat.

Life experiences

Working in Music

With 3 years working experience in the music industry in a job I gained straight after leaving university, and mentoring numerous work experience candidates that come through our company I have a great deal of knowledge in how to get ahead in the music industry, where to look for more information and who to talk to within the industry.


While in my final year at university with the great stresses of completing my finals and working 20 hours per week to get by I suffered badly from anxiety. I have learned how to manage my anxiety and am happy to empathise with and offer advice to anyone else who may suffer from this.


Having been at university for 5 years and soon to be returning I have a good knowledge of the various ups and downs of being a student. Be it having problems with your landlord, troubles with your tutors or any classes, falling into debt, I'm happy to help wherever possible.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I have been looking at various ways to volunteer abroad recently and to help others. This has proven to be very difficult due to the huge number of organisations available and the sheer amount to take into consideration, but I stumbled upon horsesmouth while looking for advice on volunteering and thought it looked a great way to volunteer in itself. It's a perfect meeting ground for people to share the knowledge they have on topics and likewise to gain information on things they themselves hope to know more about.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
