Graduating with an MA from Edinburgh University, Helen moved to London where she worked with an advertising research and brand communications company before moving to Tokyo in 2006. During her seven years in Tokyo, Helen worked as a teacher, translator and creator of language education materials before becoming a mom and moving back to London.
After moving to New York, Helen set up an educational blog to share craft ideas, fun activities and new music on the children’s music scene. Helen was able to utilise her passion for education, creativity and writing and the blog was successful in becoming a prominent ‘kindie‘ (kids’ music) blog in the U.S., which not only promoted album releases in children’s music but also suggested ways in which the music could inspire activities and crafts.
Helen is a mother of two and comes from a family of teachers and creatives. She is a keen runner and did her first marathon for charity last year.
