Biography

To deliver incredible events, both large and small, on time, to budget, and safely.

It all started with the Liverpool 2008 Capital of Culture

I first came across Walk the Plank while working on the opening ceremony for the Liverpool ’08 Capital of Culture. It was a truly massive show, so an amazing experience to work on for my first job in production.

Looking back I would say that the experience was my first induction into the outdoor arts sector, after which I had a busy year working on other Liverpool ’08 projects including the hugely popular Superlambanana Trail (imagine animals shaped as half lamb and half banana dotted around the city) as Project Co-ordinator.

I returned to Walk the Plank in 2011 and have worked on a range of projects, my favourite being Manchester Day – a huge celebratory event on a huge scale in the city I live in.

My specialism

Making the impossible possible. All of our clients have brilliant ideas which may seem off the wall at first glance, but that’s what we like.

With a bit of thought and inspiration, we can make the seemingly impossible happen.

What attracted me to Walk the Plank?

I love the scale of its work and its boundless imagination. The events we pull off show real theatrical audacity. And I love the way our work is designed to engage with people and communities to give them a sense of pride in who they are and where they come from.

What do I get up to outside work?

When I’m Googling where to travel next, you’ll find me listening to even numbered radio stations (Radio 2 and Radio 4 then). I’m also a volunteer assessor for A Greener Festival, a non profit organisation dedicated to reducing the environmental impacts of festivals and outdoor events.
