As a Creative Producer, I lead on the production and delivery of creative programmes, projects and live events. My strengths in project planning and management, relationship building and artist engagement is the core of my work.
My experience has encompassed programming, events management, festival management, project delivery and development and wider networking, sector development and strategic planning activities.

I have worked in major city centres, handling bespoke builds, licensing and ESAG alongside local council departments.
I have led on contracting, of venues, artists and crew. I have led staff teams, technical crews and managed community based volunteer programmes.
I am first aid and mental health first aid trained, and have worked with Attitude is Everything in approaches to accessibility at both indoor and outdoor events.
Programming and Project Management
I have led major venue and festival programmes, I curate and book artists to suit to style and size of event.
I have managed, developed and delivered projects for regional and national organisations. Maintaining networks and reviewing progress to ensure the projects grow to meet need and deliver the best outcomes.
