About me

An Australian in London, I am a digital marketing professional with over six years of experience in the music & entertainment fields. I’ve built my career in a variety of roles, where I have not only devised and executed digital strategies across high-profile artists roster/s & campaigns, but gained an abundance of knowledge as an assistant artist manager in day-to-day management, admin, creative, a&r, and touring. I have worked closely with a variety of artists in developing their online persona, creative, tone and strategy to build a passionate & dedicated following. More specifically, my experience has seen me curate the ‘Secret Garden Show’ movement - a concept that brought Matt Corby’s intimate gig setting to 56 fans’ backyards across Australia, the UK, USA and Sweden, and subsequently captured the attention of Australian & international media. I was also nominated as Community Manager of the Year (Social Buzz Awards) for my work on 5 Seconds of Summer’s debut release campaign (the album has now seen over 3M album sales worldwide).
