About me

Following an adolescence of touring in bands, DJing in nightclubs across the country and working in various studios and music venues, my early twenties have so far consisted of heading up a national live music night, working for one of the biggest labels in the world and helping build a playlist curation page to over 74k followers. After a lifetime of following my passion for music and learning new things, I'm now looking to specialise.
