Education

Nikki Gordon-Bloomfield attended Guildhall School of Music and Drama between 1998 and 2002, where she trained as a classical oboist.

Career

While still at music college Nikki recorded Julia Usher's A Reed in the Wind for solo Oboe and performed as an alto in a piece written specially written for her by Usher to sing on the CD Sacred Physic..

After graduating, Nikki worked for several years as a music teacher before working for six months in 2005 as a disc editor for Future PLC's monthly Macintosh magazine, Mac Format under editor Graham Barlow. She then returned to teaching, working as a freelance music tutor and musician.

Between 2004 and 2006 she worked alongside webcomic artist Jenn Dolari to produce songs to accompany the webcomic "Closetspace" about a young transgender girl named Carrie Terrell. Nikki wrote four songs which she performed as the voice of Carrie.

In 2008 Nikki appeared in an occasional podcast series called "Nikki Drives" and she ceased teaching music in 2009 to pursue a career in podcasting. She became the regular Saturday host of "The Evcast" in June 2009 and became known for her honest take on the world of electric vehicles. Regular guests included Robert Llewellyn, Chelsea Sexton and Michael Boxwell.

December 2009 saw Nikki launch a second podcast, "This Week in Energy" with co-host Bob Tregilus. The show broadcasts live every Wednesday and discusses the weekly news in the energy world, with a focus on renewable energy and energy saving. Notable guests have included Dr. Kiki Sanford, Camille Ricketts, and Pilgrim Beart

She has also helped fund-raise for the Roz Rows show on Leo Laporte's TWiT network in December 2009. In the same month (December 2009) she released a video to help fund-raise in aid of the Nathan Abbott fund.

Come May 2010 Nikki ceased work for the "The EVcast", announcing on-air that she would no-longer be hosting the Saturday show, citing a forthcoming adoption and expressing that she no-longer had time to spend podcasting. A month later in June 2010, she started a new podcast, "Transport Evolved", on which she hosts alongside Michael Boxwell and Mark Hunter every Thursday. It is the second podcast to come from her and her partner's company littleCollie.

In keeping with her love for EV transport, she also writes for "All Cars Electric" at www.allcarselectric.com.

Personal life

Nikki is openly lesbian, having come out at university. She supports LGBT causes and often tweets about LGBT equality, self-describing herself as a "LGBT campaigner".

She married her partner of five years, Kathryn Gordon in August 2009. The couple double-barrelled their family name to Gordon-Bloomfield. The couple have adopted.
