I have spent several years performing, recording and touring with various artists, during which time I have gained customer service, front of house and administrative experience, having worked for various organisations across the non-profit and corporate sectors. In 2016 I completed a bachelor’s degree in Popular Music from Goldsmiths University, London. The experience gained as a performer has led me to complete a master’s degree in 2018 in Events and Experience Management, enabling me to utilise my previous experience whilst gaining new skills and further enhancing my knowledge of live event production. I believe with my previous experience I am able to bring considerable transferable skills into a career in events.
Currently part of a small team with the MA Events and Experience Management cohort organising a student festival at Goldsmiths University, London.
