Experience

WORK HISTORY

With over 25 years of global touring experience, I’ve worked on a multitude of tours throughout North America, Europe, Australia, Asia, South America and South Africa. My roles have included Tour Director, Tour Manager and Production Manager, with specific skills in areas of tour accounting, budgets, show settlements, staffing, vendor allocation, routing assistance, travel coordination, charter jet bookings and work visas.

I’ve worked as a promoter rep and have the ability to see touring from both sides of the table – as a touring artist as well as from the promoter side which lends a unique slant to understanding all aspects of touring. I’m extremely well-organized, efficient and a focused multitasker with the ability to anticipate and troubleshoot issues well in advance.

I was born in the UK, but have lived in the United States for most of my life. I currently reside in Atlanta, GA. I possess a valid passport and have no issues touring Canada or internationally.

I’ve spoken on panels for several years at the Tour Link Conference, the IMFCON Conference as well as the 2019 The Hubb Conference in Nashville for CAA to promote diversity in the music industry. I’ve have also written many professional articles about my time in the industry.

Related skills: Mac OSX, MS Office, Filemaker Pro, Adobe Acrobat Pro and Master Tour software.
