About me


Creative and diligent university graduate looking for a progressive and challenging role within a Music or Digital Media company. I am particularly interested in learning how digital and disruptive technologies affects marketing strategies and techniques used by music companies to further their artist’s careers in a rapidly changing, highly competitive and innovative market environment. In my 2nd year at university my modules consisted of Business Start-Up, Digital Entertainment Commerce, Project Management, Digital Design Project, Popular Music Culture and Music Publishing. During my third year I studied Event Management, executed a final major project, wrote a dissertation and undertook four work industry placements. I am driven by my passion as a music consumer and particularly as a fan of Heavy Metal. I have the enthusiasm towards gaining experience and learning as much as possible.
