“Every client has different needs and it makes what I do every day different too.”

What’s your favourite part about working here?
It’s 10,000 square foot and state-of-the-art, so a really great place to work. The difference in my day-to-day work is great, too. Every client has different needs and it makes what I do every day different too.

What are 3 rules to live by at The Backstage Centre?
Turn up early, work hard when you’re here and get to know everyone.

Who is your favourite client you’ve worked with so far?
Rex Orange County was really great. It was the first client that I did all the liaising with their production team, so it was really exciting and a good memory of working here. John Barrowman’s Christmas tour was also really great. I’m a big Doctor Who fan so meeting him was very exciting.
