I oversee the operations of the building and manage the visitor facing team at the gallery. I also head our Environmental Sustainability Group so am looking at ways to reduce the carbon emissions of the gallery going forwards.What steps did you take to get where you are now?I have been working in the arts since leaving university in 2005. I have progressed from working in visitor facing roles into areas such as programming, development, sales, outreach and marketing. During my seven years at Square Chapel Arts Centre in Halifax I was one of the team that managed the £6.6 million pound redevelopment of the venue and introduced and managed a film programme that welcomed thousands of people a year. I also introduced the first film festival at the venue and welcomed guests such as Chris Morris, Brian Blessed, Clio Barnard, Kay Mellor and even Paul Chuckle. I have also worked in independent events programming with an aim of all of the events being carbon neutral. I have worked with various companies to offset emissions as part of live events and am increasing working in this sector.What type of creative opportunities are you looking for?I enjoy playing my part in encouraging interaction with the arts in the live and visual arts sectors and am interested in both operational and event programming opportunities.Answer as many of the following questions as you like to enhance your profile pageMy dream creative collaboration would be...I have already worked with Chris Morris on a few events and its hard to top that!What does Wakefield mean to you?It's a city that has the people to make the most of the cultural opportunities available to us. It's ambitions are really good to see.My proudest momentI had a dream to screen Flash Gordon with a Brian Blessed Q&A and Queen tribute act and somehow I made it happen!An unexpected thing about meI once sent my own signed photo to 100 celebrities to see if they would swap with me. I now have over 400 autographs of various different people in my house!Tick any that apply to youCreative Services Architecture & Planning Creative Education Creative Producing Design Services Graphic Design Marketing & Advertising Other Product Design Set Design Technical Production Creative Content Animation Digital Content Creation Games Design Other Photography Publishing Radio & Podcasts TV & Film Creative Original Apparel & Fashion Arts & Crafts Creative Writing Fine Art Other Creative Experiences Dance Libraries Museums and Heritage Music Other Performing Arts Theatre Creative Digital App Development AR & VR Computer Networking Other Software Development Web Design Showcase your workYour video showreel Copy and paste the URL of your Vimeo or YouTube videoUpload up to 5 showcase imagesShowcase image 1 Drop files here or Select files Accepted file types: jpg, jpeg, png, Max. file size: 10 MB.
