ABOUT/EXPERIENCE

 

Since graduating from Central Saint Martins, London in 2001. I have worked in a wide variety of creative roles, whilst living in both London, England & Brussels, Belgium.

I have a great passion for communications, video & image creation. I continuously seek to enhance this skillset. To date, I have directed and edited music videos for bands, directed live performance shoots in 2000+ Capacity venues, produced animated content for NGO’s, and worked with known actor’s such as George Harris co star of the film ‘Layer Cake’.

In the music business, I enjoyed a ten year, career as a live music event promoter, collaborating with bands, talent agencies and record labels to successfully market over 50 events. To drive ticket sales, I executed marketing campaigns across multiple channels. Advertising above the line with PPC Facebook Ads & paid post boosts on Social media, and below the line in newspapers & magazine’s, such as the Guardian Guide, G2 & TimeOut.

In addition to the above, between 2002 & 2010, I worked on a freelance contact basis for various architectural & design practices in London, such as WSP & SOM. Gaining valuable knowledge of planning, CAD, RIBA design process & information management best practice, on commercial development projects.
