I had previously been working as the Booking Agent & Assistant to the Director for Music PR & Events company The Playground for over a year and a half, and over this time I have assisted in the bookings and acted as the stage manager for events at venues including Scala, KOKO, XOYO, Proud Camden, 93 Feet East and Electrowerkz working with known artists including; Gary Numan, Yelle, The Fall, Albama 3, Johnny Foreigner, Waylayers, Sebastian, Kavinsky and many more. I have also had much experience organising and managing other events including a stage at The great Escape Festival.
I enjoy performing and composing music and have been playing the violin and piano since the age of 7 and more recently also the viola, guitar and cello; since obtaining grade 8 for both violin and piano I have been teaching music privately to children between the ages of 7-15 as well as assisting within young orchestral groups such as Derby County Intermediate Orchestra and Intermediate String Orchestra.
Over the years I have been a member and performed and lead many groups and ensembles such as Derby Concert Orchestra, Huddersfield Philharmonic Orchestra, Derby Senior Youth Orchestra, Nottingham Youth Orchestra, City University London Orchestra, Hampstead String Quartet, Portobello Orchestra and have also performed with the National Youth Music Theatre.
