About me

It’s one thing to have a vision and another to realise it. Highly organised and motivated, I’ve directed and produced artist projects, events and podcasts whilst committing to a full-time job at LBC Radio as a Technical Operator and Production Assistant. With over 6 years’ experience I’ve gained a strong set of creative skills allowing me to know what it takes to deliver high quality, professional work for projects such as poetry events to music production.
