About me

I conceptualize, produce and create performances that scratch at the surface until the dark shines through. I can transfer these skills over to other roles in creative industries, from producing events, to giving artistic direction, to applying imaginative thinking and generating solutions, and leading teams towards project completion. Past employment includes Assistant Director at Abbey Road for the TV show ;Live from Abbey Road, Season 5', and free-lance Sub Editor for market research/ behavioral analysis company Canvas*. Working along side Miranda Davis who is a leading creative producer in multi-platform communications, we assist businesses who need to update their appeal and approach towards their audience. In my most creative sphere I continue prizing a working relationship with composers, adjusting the entertainment scene with new ways of working music into life.
