About me

 

My degree in Publishing Media teamed with five years experience at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival helped me to become a dextrous professional capable of delivering high quality event experiences, in tandem with strategic and engaged marketing and communications efforts, supporting my projects at all levels of customer engagement from conception to completion. In 2009 my career developed into snow, action and adventure sports and I’ve since had the privilege to work for mountain resorts in New Zealand, Scotland, Canada, France and England. I’ve worked in event production for a variety of action sports brands and ski resorts as well as produced content, marketing and PR collateral for multiple sports brands and media owners. In February 2015 I founded Dewpoint Global Communications in order to work on a number of short term projects for a variety of clients within outdoor events and creative projects. In addition, I also operate as a Freelance Event Manager for a number of brand led experiential events in London and at Festivals across the UK. My strengths lie in operations, logistics, communications and relationship management.
