Every Christmas, as a child, Mary’s parents gave her a composer’s bust, and booklet about the composer’s life. These were usually composers whose music Mary had been practising as part of her piano studies. This sparked an interest in discovering the stories behind the music.

Mary approached 2MBS towards the end of 2021 after studies in musical appreciation reignited her childhood interest. She is currently a Fine Music presenter, Board member and occasional contributor of magazine articles.

Away from Fine Music, Mary helps companies solve business problems with emerging technology. Other interests include history, most forms of biography and life writing, and travel.
