About me
Founder of Body Movements Festival. Founder of Little Gay Brother LTD. Founder Feel It Events LTD. Producer and business owner specialising in music events and festival experiences for an LGBTQI+ audience. I've run my own LGBTQI+ events company since 2012, started my own festival in 2021, but I originally cut my teeth in festival production, working for experiential agencies, and television news. I've worked with a variety of brands and organisations over the years, including; Jim Beam, Red Bull, Laphroaig, Absolut, Stoli, House of Peroni, EE, Secret Garden Party, elrow, Google, Capital FM, BBC and many more. I now work solely within the LGBTQI+ arts and music community. I'm interested in brand partnerships and working with sponsors across my events and festival, as well as meeting the community of Soho Works. If you see me, say “Hi”, I often work out of Shoreditch and 180. If you're a brand looking to collaborate, please email us at info@bodymovements.co.uk

  • Little Gay Brother - An origins story
    Little Gay Brother - An origins storyHow the need to make The Secret Garden Party's first and only LGBTQI+ space became a 10-year journey and fight for equality, queer space, and queer safety - touching thousands of people, changing perspectives, and making the festival industry more inclusive. This is the origins of Little Gay Brother. Little Gay Brother was founded in 2012. Back then, having a dedicated place for LGBTQI+ fun in fields was pretty rare, so I set up The Secret Garden Party’s first queer space, "The Coming Out Bar".
