Creative Producer

“THANK YOU for your help and expertise with the schools’ engagement and tickets- we’re really grateful that you created a clear pathway, which made the collaboration with the schools really smooth, and gave us so many ticket sales. We couldn’t have done Even You Song without you, thank you for all your support for the project!” Bettina Furnee, Even You Song 2017

“You are a complete star, a bit of a genius and a heck of a talented producer.  You including us in the Voices Now festival has had huge effects amongst the choir and the people around it.  Everyone is buzzing two days on.”  David Ricketts – Shuffle Tunes Choir, Voices Now 2015

“We have had so many positive comments about the slickness of the organisation and your logistical arrangements meant that everything  worked very smoothly on the day. We cannot thank you enough for your exemplary commitment to the role that you took on for us and I hope that you feel that your hard work was worthwhile –the excellence of the concert should hopefully have  given you a great sense of satisfaction of a job well done.” Trevor Jones, Worcestershire Youth Music 2015

Much of my work involves Event Management. I can design your event from scratch, work with a pre-existing idea or just help to guide you through all the steps necessary for an artistically exciting, professional, safe event.
