About me

A music loving finance graduate with an evident passion for creativity and marketing. Having only entered the music industry 18 months ago, I am already managing the commercial dealings for a leading UK rap producer, with a focus on using his compositions for the purposes of sync licensing opportunities. I have direct access to numerous MOBO winners and their respective management, and have used my work to forge my own close relationships with the aforementioned with a view to increasing their income and creating further commercial opportunity. Beyond the realms of music, I was personally responsible for the design and distribution of over 3000 leaflets, in addition to arranging media coverage, in opposition to a local redevelopment which threatened green space. With the help of a petition, the decision to proceed with the development was reviewed and aspects relating to a reduction in green space were removed. I am determined to further immerse myself within the music industry and put my wide-ranging talents to use.
