Andrew says…

“Born and raised in Hackney, my background has largely been in music. From music production and events, to studying music management and artist development at Bucks’ New University. After completing university, finding opportunities in the music industry have been hard to come by without the relevant experience, leading to me creating my own events company in an aim to create my own path and to hopefully work with/help others that have had similar difficulties. This has led to me meeting a number of amazingly talented people along the way and sharing some of my skills with them.

I will be spending my time on the STEP program at Sadler’s Wells Theatre, as a programming intern, and the V&A Museum, as part of the curatorial team. This is an experience where I am hoping to learn as much as possible. Building on my networks within the artistic community, finding out more information on how these companies decide on their artistic direction, and learning more about the dance/art world and how they collaborate with music.”
