About me
Experienced Photographer with a demonstrated years of experience working in the Entertainment, Media and Start-Up industries. Strongly driven by creativity and digital arts, a design thinking professional with a degree in Management and Entrepreneurship focused in Global Strategy and Innovation from Lancaster University. Nurtured from theatre and music projects, I have been encouraged to appreciate collaboration with neurodiverse teams and making objective risk and reward evaluations on time-sensitive tasks. I have been taught with a technological mindset within contexts of both academia and global corporations; I have learned to inject myself into new challenges, embrace trial-and-error and always consider the perspectives of end-users within any event, project or product I lay my hands on. I have since grown with the entertainment and media industry to respect the nuances of client, partner and stakeholder relationships. While all of my experiences have given me a variety of tasks, my passion has always been within exerting creativity to execute tasks on a variety of scales.

    Business and Marketing StrategyJacaranda Records
    Liverpool, United KingdomFull Time
    Jacaranda Records is an immersive-first Musik Haus based in the heart of Liverpool's creative community, and if content be King, then creativity is King Kong. Working with a wide international coalition of musicians, producers, managers and audio visual experts, the label provides a disruptive antidote to the traditional music industry ethos, forging new approaches to music creation, manufacture, promotion and distribution that leave control and revenues firmly in the hands of our artists. Jacaranda Records provides developing and established artists with a range of creative, technical and monetization services while preserving their full mechanical, publishing and IP rights. Artist focused, forward-thinking and expert in deploying innovative technologies and techniques through every stage of the recording, release, distribution and commercialisation cycles, the label works with a diverse range of creatives and performers to maximise the impact and returns for their work, all the while re-imagining, re-inventing and re-defining what impact and return means. Jacaranda Records is taking the soul of an organisation built on launching talent in a City where music is in its DNA, and forging a new path forwards to support and build on the breadth of talent that continually walks its streets, all with an attitude and vision befitting its people and the global audiences who care about music.
