There seems to have been a lot changes recently so thought it was time I updated my website blog! I’ve finished my masters in Project Management from Liverpool Uni, my dissertation was focussed on looking at quality management control tools within the arts and culture sector to see how effective they could be. The Bristol Music Mixer project with Josh Bishop kicked off in September 2013 and ran for a year, this provided opportunities for anyone involved in the music industry within Bristol to meet and greet guest speakers on a monthly basis as well as networking with one another.

In 2015 I took on the role of production manager for Bristol International Jazz and Blues Festival which gave me an opportunity to work with an amazing group of artists, managers, producers, crew etc…basically the whole festival team! You can keep up to date with the festival by keeping an eye on their website, I also had a bit of spare time to get involved in a little bit of dressing up…
In case you didn’t know, there is a great venue in the middle of Bath called the Bath Forum, which is a beautiful building that showcase artists such as Texas, Patti Smith, Richard Thompson, Joan Armatrading, Sir Willard White, Kate Rusby and Rufus Wainwright! I have the pleasure of venue repping for them, and it’s given me a chance to see some amazing performances in a pretty intimate and beautiful setting.
My work at St George’s Bristol is something that has kept me quite busy as well! We have a capital fundraising project taking place were the organisation is raising funds to build a large extension in the grounds in order to support additional education, development and artistic activity. It’s an overwhelmingly amazing project which will no doubt provide Bristol with another platform to showcase the diverse artistic culture that we house within the city!! To launch the project myself, Thomas Gould and Ksenija Sidorova rigged a ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ performance on top of St George’s! #buildasoundfuture
