About me

Company Manager and Social Media Producer. After many years of experimenting and exploring social technology working with arts and culture audiences I am returning to my roots with the fruits of my labour. I graduated back in 1994 from Bretton Hall with a BA in Theatre Design & Technology and spent 10 years working in TIE, Fringe, Rural Touring, MidScale touring and Regional Rep. My experience spans ASM, DSM, CSM, Production Assistant, Lighting Designer and virtual SM in online 3D environment Second Life. I am also an accomplished conference manager, producing a licensed TEDx event with a team of 3 at Nottingham Contemporary in 2012. I have regularly worked with arts organisation Audiences Europe Network as a digital CM stagemanaging company members while extending audience experiences through social media engagement, outreach and delivery. This year I have worked with The New Optimists on a street musical about food crime, The Hand That Feeds as Social Media Producer.
