I started in Events over 10 years ago and in that time I've had the opportunity to work on festivals, concerts, conferences, award shows and more. I started to freelance properly in 2019, and focused on music, arts and entertainment. I've held roles that include Event Coordinator, Artist Liaison, Stage Manager, Tour Manager & Venue Manager.
In May 2023 I did something I didn’t plan for and stumbled into a role at a venue. I’m now an Event Manager at The Halls in Wolverhampton (a AEG presents venue). They have been really understanding and given me flexibility. I worked for SJM as a VIP Manager on the JLS tour, had various festivals roles and did artist liaison at Soundstorm in Saudi Arabia. The balance between full time and freelance work is something I’m yet to perfect but I’m enjoying working it out, and look forward to what’s to come.
