I'm a music lover with a flare for cultural strategy. I’m always looking for new artists, who are yet to be discovered. I believe it is my duty to support and push any artist who is creating authentically and honestly. I live by one motto 'if it's authentic I'll support it'. I'm highly skilled in talent scouting across all creative fields and being ahead of the cultural curve.Locked Pro Plan feature

I worked alongside the NANG team, a brand that is the heart of alternative hip-hop and R&B. I help organise interviewees for our radio show on Radar. I also helped with discovering up and coming artists from the alternative R&B and hip-hop world and sourcing them for our platform.
In 2013, I completed a two-week work placement at BBC Radio 1Xtra. I worked on the Trevor Nelson show on 1xtra. I assisted with the live production of his daily radio show, working closely with his production team, occasionally creating radio sweepers and small feature packages. I also sat in on the music play-listing meetings. Furthermore I was able to contribute to the radio plugger meetings, suggesting up and coming artist's that would suit Trevor's show.
