She then went on to complete a degree in Music at Christ Church College, Oxford, and has since sound engineered for Pete Waterman, toured the USA in a Rock Opera band, and played the piano in front of a wide range of audiences from concert halls and corporate balls to Brian May and Bruce Dickinson.

LJ listens to pretty much every musical genre, and can talk for ages about the parallels between classical and contemporary music, the power of twitter, and the joy of good science fiction.
