    About me

    I'm a freelance ASM book cover / DSM, with professional experience in new writing, musical theatre and mid-scale touring. Having studied an MA Stage and Event Management at Royal Welsh College, I am passionate about supporting creative collaboration and the creation of new work. I'm looking to build upon my experience in new writing and touring work, and continue to develop relationships with producing theatres and companies in London or around the UK.
