Being from Manchester I started out working as an artist liaison for the Ugly Duckling company, more commonly known for its big club events Warehouse Project. After realising that this is the only industry I could possibly work in, I moved to London and studied a Music Business BA and passed with a 2.1. Whilst learning the foundations of the industry from mentors such as Rob Dickins - a former director of Warner Brothers, I persistently interned and even created my own jobs to gain further experience in the industry. I've assisted at management company’s, independent Royalty collection agencies, a publishing and licensing house, producing music videos for artist I know to being given the chance to work in Germany with leading booking agency ‘Lanstreicer Booking’ as a tour manager for 2 months. I ended up graduating university with a 2.1 and have been lucky enough to score a full time job in the industry I love.
