WORK AND OTHER PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE


I coordinated Industry Guest Ticketing sales for the entire Festival Republic portfolio, for hundreds of label and industry clients in the U.K. and beyond. I also developed an auditing system in VBA and Microsoft Access for allocating wristband stock at a selection of events.

I then developed this further as a Contractor / Consultant for Festival Republic and Live Nation, delivering software which helped make the admission process less “time-consuming and labour intensive”, placing the data needed to make decisions on a redundant cloud platform.


I’m currently leading the Brubot project funded by Brunel University London, a Messenger chatbot with Artificial Intelligence which consolidates all University services into one point-of-contact. The bot also integrates with SITS through a custom-made API, allowing targeted two-way conversation between the University and the students.


I edited montages for live output, edited news content for BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra Newsbeat, researched content for live shows, edited content from AutoROT and BBC Desktop Jukebox, and sources callers who were compliant with the BBC Editorial Guidelines.


I’ve undertaken a variety of roles, from query resolution to technical support, as an Entertainments Assistant for the Union’s Nightlife offerings.


I worked with The Event Umbrella for five years at local and international events of various sizes. From managing IT and communications in Bansko for Horizon Festival to acting as Event Control during the Whitstable Oyster Festival, I have gained a wealth of experience in a range of senior roles.


Working on an Outreach event as part of 1Xtra Live 2014, my task was to establish and create an event plan and assess suitable venues. I also contributed to the production of on-air and off-air output.
