About me

An aspiring Events Manager with good all round experience of festival management in areas such as; administration, budget management, festival production, media and PR, artist & trader liaison and site logistics. Able to work under pressure, in a fast-paced environment and stay motivated. I have developed a huge passion for music events since my involvement with Glas-Denbury in 2013 and have strived to involve myself with as many similar projects since such as Free Harmony Festival, CLOUD 9 PRODUCTIONS, Made by Hand Craft Festival and various side projects with Sky High Promotions.
