PR & Media Coordinator

Studio Manager | CICAS® Producer
Ahmad is our studio engineer and Trombone player in the four piece Future Afro Jazz band United Vibrations. He always has new projects on the go and is madly skilled on a mixer. He teaches music production on our AYM, Cre8tiv® and Deaf Rave programmes and it is unlikely that you will see him wearing anything other than tye-dye around MMC.
Vicky has worked in an accounts background for twenty-five years, over ten of which she has devoted to MMC. Vicky was born in South Africa where she studied until the age of 11.
Vicky loves working with figures and is super fast on a calculator. Perhaps nature played a part giving Vicky 11 fingers when she was born to help her count higher than most people. She loves listening to the sultry voice of Ben Howard whilst gardening but prefers more upbeat club music to run to. She uses her great knowledge of Excel spreadsheets and methodical skills to aid the efficient running of the finances at MMC.
