    FounderPretend
    Leeds, United KingdomFreelance
    Managing all aspects of the company’s events including the programming, advancing, marketing, finance and other administrative tasks. Editor of all content put out by the brand including written reviews, radio broadcasts and video content. Pretend started as a Radio show on Leeds Student Radio and was nominated for a Student Radio Award, some of the feedback is below: “The strategic/music expertise and commitment on display here from a single producer is remarkable with some of the output on par with some of the national music stations” “Pretend operates a strategy similar to those used in the industry often with a team behind them… to be able to replicate that level of output without those resources is a fantastic achievement
