Emily began volunteering with vulnerable groups in 2003, later going on to work with homeless children in Calcutta for seven months in 2006 and 2007; street sleepers in Cambridge for a year and a half from 2007-2008; and with prisoners at The Clink Restaurant, HMP High Down, in 2011.

After graduating from Cambridge University with a BA in Oriental Studies, Emily met Robin Harris and they embarked on a plan to bring unique, ambitious music projects into prisons. The venture later became Finding Rhythms and was granted charitable status in May 2013.

Emily’s career also spans work as Programme Co-ordinator at Birds Eye View Film Festival between 2011-2013 and work as a chef between 2004-2011. Emily DJs with the Voodoo Rave collective and has written a thesis on the evolution of language-use through rap and freestyle poetry. She is a fellow of the RSA and a committee member of the Mercers’ Charitable Foundation.
