Head of Marketing, Communications and Social Media for KALLIDA Festival, a well received digital arts and music festival currently located in Somerset. I also help with the programming and logistics of the event as well as acting as resident DJ.
I worked in the events team to curate and promote Resident Advisor events globally, working with a network of venues, promoters, artists, agents, brands and media outlets around the world. Over the course of 4 years, I programmed, promoted and managed over 200 events and festival stages, including a number of global events series such as twenty four/seven, RA In Residence and Community Connections. Our events took many forms - parties, live concerts, panels, workshops, film screenings, football tournaments and more. I worked alongside our Brand Partnerships team to deliver world class activations for a number of partners including Nike, Absolut Vodka and Sonos. Our charity series ravelove raised over £50k for great causes across the world.
As an account executive for Resident Advisor Tickets, I made sure that promoters were able to use the site effectively and provide a point of contact to resolve any issues. I co-ordinated hundreds of event payments worldwide weekly, and also analysed all purchases for fraudulent activity.
