PRODUCING & EVENTS

I'm a person who loves to make things happen. I produce and manage creative events. On this page you will find my management biog and some links to festivals and events I have worked on.

 

BIOGRAPHY

Most recently, I worked with Renfrewshire Council's events team as creative producer and programmer for Sma' Shot Day 2020, this event pivoted to an online festival in response to the current circumstances. 

In 2013, I received a career development mentorship through Dance UK (now One Dance UK) which inspired my transition into management and producing. The following year, I coordinated a Scottish tour and engagement programme for Epic Encounters Dance Company (Epic Arts, Cambodia). I then worked as an assistant producer on Indepen-dance's International Festival of Inclusive Dance, Gathered Together in 2016. 


In 2017 I undertook a Federation of Scottish Theatre producer placement with Tramway and The Work Room, working on Dance International Glasgow and led on the festival’s engagement and artist development programme and was an assistant producer for performance events. ​

I have a BA Honours in Dance and an HND in Professional Stage Dance from Edinburgh's Telford College (2002-2005). I also participated in European Festivals Association’s Festival Academy Atelier for Young Festival Managers in Merano, Italy in Autumn 2017, for which I was supported by Creative Scotland.
