How did you get into the design world?
My dad’s a graphic designer so I was heavily influenced by his work growing up and his love of 70s screen-printed posters. I was a design school drop-out but never lost my love for design. I knew I wanted to be around it again, so worked in other industries and settings to get the skills needed to be a producer.
Previously I worked at Igloo near Broadway Market as their first studio manager and it was both challenging and very rewarding – creating new ways of working and putting some good processes in place for them to succeed.
Were there any early clues that you’d be doing what you do now?
I grew up in Nottingham – great buses and a great music scene. I was more interested in the music posters than the bands, so if I saw a poster I liked I’d probably go to the gig!
