Work history

Currently

Live Music Promoter & Event Manager

National Promotions & Event Manager

George FM

Sep 2014 - Aug 2015
  • George FM is New Zealand’s largest electronic music radio station, broadcasting to over 100,000 listeners each week. The station’s most unique aspect is that three-quarters of programming consists of DJs mixing live to air. My position involved overseeing station-owned events and third party promotions. I created and implemented a national events strategy for the station. This involved brainstorming both ticketed and un-ticketed event concepts, promoting and marketing them to listeners, and managing the events themselves. The promotions side of the position involved implementing concepts that promoted third-party businesses via the station. I was required to devise ideas and develop proposals, ensure promotions were implemented correctly, and report results back to clients.

Radio Host

George FM

Apr 2012 - Aug 2015
  • Host of Saturday nights, 6-9pm, with a focus on showcasing new electronic music and featuring guest interviews and live performances. I was responsible for all programming and the musical direction, and all DJing was carried out live to air. The timeslot was a great opportunity to connect with thousands of people across New Zealand each weekend as they were getting ready to head out for the night.
