About me
Senior Curator at Boiler Room. Everything we do is rooted in the energy of club culture and its ability to bring people together. Open dancefloors; where music, ideas and people meet. Boiler Room started with a webcam taped to a wall, broadcasting from a warehouse in London, opening a keyhole to the city’s underground. DIY at its finest; raw, uncut, homemade. As an independent music platform and cultural curator we remain true to that history. Connecting club culture to the wider world, on screen and irl though parties, film and video. Since 2010, we’ve built a unique archive; featuring over 4,000 performances, by more than 5,000 artists, spanning 150 cities, enabling everyone regardless of where they live to enjoy the freedom it stands for. Our remit is to platform music in new ways - sound on for the voices and stories of the fringes of the mainstream. My role: • Taking a lead role in booking artists for major worldwide branded shows • Acting as a bridge between the music and commercial team and the event production and broadcast team. • Having input on the musical direction and music booking strategy for Boiler Room and it’s global music policy.

Interactive venues are a concept that I've been bouncing around in my head for a while, and I finally got to make a version of come to life in VR. Boiler Room made this excellent film to tease the experience, which gives an atmospheric, almost dystopian peek into the project:
