About me

I am a graduate of Leicester University with a degree in English with a Year Abroad BA. I have actively been involved in Leicester’s growing music scene having run the university’s band and gig music society which has given me invaluable experience in everything from organising gigs to liaising with artists, venues and promoters as well as managing all elements of social media. Using this experience I have been hosting and organising various DIY house shows with local and touring artists in various houses across Leicester. My passion for music has led me to volunteer with various festivals including Reading Festival, working with the Campsite Assistant Team and Handmade Festival, where I worked as the Press Liaison officer; arranging and scheduling all interviews over the three day festival independently. Throughout my year abroad I volunteered for a DIY venue in Utrecht, NL that played host to Guess Who festival with international artists. I took on various job roles, working as an assistant sound engineer, lighting tech, stage manager and assisting the artist liaison team. This year I have co-founded a body and sex-positive online magazine writing about art, fashion and music, interviewing creatives in these industries. Alongside my English degree this has refined my writing abilities and developed my ability to adhere to a strict deadline.
