I have over 15 years experience of working with Arts, Heritage and Creative organisations and I’m hugely passionate about my work and the community connections and creativity enabled through them.
I work with clients who have passion to engage children and young people in their programmes, to inspire hearts and minds and really care about pushing creativity in their environment.
I am an expert project manager offering full cycle programme management including audience development and evaluation. I also offer affordable consultancy, facilitation, staff/ artist mentoring, engagement and organisational/ staff development.
