Thea studied Earth Sciences at St. Peter’s College, Oxford, graduating with a first class for her Master’s research. As a Choral Scholar, she enjoyed regular solo roles including Belinda in Purcell’s Dido and Anaeas with St. Peter’s College Opera. She still performs regularly with City of London Choir, with recent concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, Cadogan Hall, and St John’s Smith Square, and sings jazz.
Her marketing experience began in committee roles with the Oxford Energy Society and Oxford University Geological Society, before employment as Marketing Assistant for Oxford Lieder Festival. Having worked as a consultant for the world-leading catastrophe modelling company, RMS, Thea is now pursuing a career in science communication. She is particularly interested in museums and festivals as dynamic spaces that bring science to life, and has worked for New Scientist Live, Berlin Science Week, volunteer curated for London’s Natural History Museum, is currently undertaking an internship with the Science Museum’s Contemporary Science Research team, and co-organising this year’s Creative Reactions festival with Pint of Science. She is an active member of Crossmodalism, delivering events and managing communications for the 1000-strong London community.
A long-time Britten fanatic, Thea is excited to be involved in the project at the genesis of this exciting new production company.
