I have been working as a project manager and producer for over eight years. I have delivered a large number of music and performing arts projects across the arts sector in the South West region and graduated with a BA(Hons) Music degree from Falmouth University in September 2013.

Prior to starting my degree at Falmouth in 2010 I worked with Arts Council England as an artist advisor and in the central production team on the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad in the South West. I am also band manager for The Klezbians, an 8-piece Jewish Gypsy Klezmer band based in Cornwall.

In my role at Falmouth University I am responsible for delivering the Academy of Music and Theatre Arts year-round public and commercial programme across all areas of production, event management and marketing. I am also responsible for managing and coordinating the box office at AMATA. This involves supporting the learning and development of students on the BA(Hons) Creative Events Management and BA(Hons) Music, Theatre & Entertainment Management courses. I am also responsible for producing and event managing the AMATA Showcase.
