  • At music sync company Dirty soup, we worked on a variety of projects - from live events to commercial to film sync and supervision. My role within the company was assisting the Director of Dirty Soup and being the sole controller and editor of the companies social media accounts. I also contributed to discovering artists and music for monthly email send outs to clients, casting and booking artists for short films and events and song search and selection for commercial's amongst other tasks. Another part of my job at Dirty Soup was the running of live events at different locations within the Soho House group. I was a representative of the company and acted as an artist liaison at the gigs Dirty Soup presented, insuring high profile clients were well looked after and everyone attending the event is sure to come back for the next one. I also attended events and shows to meet potential new clients and musicians, I loved this aspect of my job at Dirty Soup as I made professional relationships that benefited the company. I worked in New York City with Dirty Soup for just over a month assisting with the set up of a New York office. I also attended events and seminars representing the company, networked and discovered American companies to work with. It was extremely interesting understanding of how different aspects of the company would change to suit a foreign audience and clientele.
