Role: Internship via Goldsmiths University
I grew up in a suburb of Chicago that truly embraces diverse culture and the creative arts, and it instilled in me a passion for creativity and entertainment at a very young age.
After undergrad, I landed my first 'real world' job at a well-established talent agency as an agent's assistant. There, I learned several tricks of the trade and the hurdles and joys of managing artists by helping them to bring their dreams to fruition. Artist management is now my passion and it has been an honour working with nitroBEAT, learning the ins and outs of producing live performances and managing actors! One of the projects I worked on was a completely digital programme for The Passion of Lady Vendredi - audiences recieved a business card with a weblink or QR code.
I was introduced to the company by my tutor, Nicola Turner, on the MA in Cultural and Creative Entrepreneurship at Goldsmiths. I love nitroBEAT's impressive attention to detail and it's long-term vision of challenging the stereotypical aspects of "black theatre" by portraying the multidimensional realms of art, which makes me excited to work for this company.
Upon completion of my MA in Cultural and Creative Entrepreneurship at Goldsmiths this year, I plan on obtaining a law degree from a university near a city with a major performing arts reputation. My goal is to eventually have a solid understanding of entertainment law, artist management and the foundation of running a successful startup in the creative industries for when I open my own company. This will be a talent agency by day and performance lounge by night.
