About me

 

As a producer I have over 8 years of experience across a wide spectrum of events and projects in art, design and digital - devising successful end-to end strategies and delivering great experiences ranging from the small, offbeat and experimental, to large-scale and immersive. I can successfully build strong brand partnerships, stakeholder relationships and leverage sponsorship deals to get events and programmes up and running; develop digital communications plans for startups and bluechips to reach new audiences; help grow and engage creative communities through strategic networking events; provide project management to all kinds of art, design and digital projects and events; curate themed talk and event programmes across multiple tracks; be on-the-ground leading event teams and managing expectations of stakeholders. Producing projects and events for London Design Biennale, London Design Festival, Digital Shoreditch, Manchester International Festival, Barbican Centre and Mattress Factory Pittsburgh, I've built relationships with companies and charities like Unilever Foundry, Visa Collab, BMW, PwC, London Stock Exchange Group, BE OPEN Foundation and Amorim. Approach: I’m a cultural explorer hunting insight - I look for new patterns in the way everyday people interact with culture, technology and each other – a methodology that has helped shape great products, services, opportunities and ideas for tech companies, entrepreneurs, brands, startups and creative agencies. Practice: I am passionate about art and astronomy. You can see my art and events here: lumenstudios.org.
