  • James Sallows


James joined the Ri in May 2017 as the Membership Officer. He is responsible for the daily operations of the membership office and is the first point of contact for all Ri Members and Ri Young Members.


James was born and went to school in Essex, where he developed a penchant for art, numbers and music. 

James studied Music Production and Popular Music at Bath Spa University and Anglia Ruskin University respectively. After graduating, James kept in touch with the music world by composing and performing with an indie rock band, all the while diversifying by entering the charity sector via the Friends of Imperial War Museums.

Favourite demo

I enjoy a demo, known by a few names, that I think is best described as 'pendulum waves'. What seems chaotic is actually meticulously rhythmic and predictable.

Best thing about the Ri

Its openness, people and history. Everyone of all backgrounds is welcome here, the staff are friendly and dedicated, and the building has housed some of the greatest minds of the last 220 years.
