About me
Events and Production Manager based in London. I started my career as an Apprentice in Community Arts & Events Management at Southbank Centre. Since then I have been lucky to have worked all over London with some the most talented and inspirational artists and production teams. I love working in fast paced and high pressure environments with tight knit teams who bring together incredible gigs, talks and festivals; sometimes overnight. My passion lies in music and creating spaces for young people and artists to discuss and explore the arts, politics and the impact they can have on the world.
