About me

 

Event/ Production Assistant looking for work in the live music industry after finishing a contract with Vevo. I’ve worked in live music for 4 years, first as a volunteer at the Great Escape and subsequently as a lighting tech and backline tech in venues in London and Brighton. More recently I worked with Vevo as a production assistant at The Great Escape and as Assistant to The Dressing Coordinator for The Pyramid and Other Stage at Glastonbury. Over these 4 years I’ve had the pleasure of working with artists such as; Girl Band, Courtney Barnett, Mabel, Blossoms, Jake Bugg and plenty more. I'm in this industry because of my passion for live music and understand the importance of the success of these events. For the Artist, Promoters, Venues and fans who pay to support the industry. I'm enthusiastic, intelligent, competent and sociable, able to play a strong role in team but through years of freelancing have grown comfortable in working independently. I'm looking to deepen my experience in the live music industry with the aim of working as a Production Coordinator for large scale music events.
