I’m a freelance Creative Producer based in Bristol.

Over the past 24 years I’ve worked for cultural and creative organisations including the BBC, Spike Island, South West Screen and most recently at the West of England Design Forum as Managing Director.

I’m the founder of WEDF UP, a co-founder of Werkhouse and in 2016 I was chosen to join Clore’s two-week residential course for cultural leaders.

I manage projects and events. I plan, deliver, write and listen. I kick started my career with a degree in Applied Psychology. I bring a level of leadership and creative thinking where it’s needed.
