I've recently completed an MA in Arts Management at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in October 2017.

I have worked as a manager in the third sector for over 20 years, and I am now re-focusing my career path to follow my passion for the Arts, creativity and community enrichment.

I have volunteering experience with community groups and theatres and I am interested in community engagement / outreach / festivals / circus / theatre and the visual arts.

I am available for employment.

Location: Cardiff

Recent Experiences / freelance work:

Events Assistant, Visiting Arts, working on an International Creative Entrepreneurs event in Cardiff, Sept - October.

Developed the marketing plan for We Made This theatre's new performance, The Girl with Incredibly Long Hair.

Artist Liaison management for Performing Arts at Green Man festival, August 2017

Support to Circus Festival Wales, contributing towards registering the new company and writing an ACW bid.

I completed an 8 week MA placement with Laura H Drane Associates as an Assistant Producer (Placement), involving supporting preparations for recent Light, Ladd & Emberton productions "Croesi Traeth" and "Owain Glyndwr" in North Wales.

The MA has given me a solid grounding and skills in Income Generation, People Management, Venue Management, Marketing, Programming, Digital Management and Customer Care.

I am a Sherman 5 volunteer and a Board Member of Cwmni Pluen.
