I started my career in the entertainments industry back in 1998 at Pontin’s as a Bluecoat and since then have been involved in an array of different entertainment projects. My first being a vocal harmony group called Envious, we travelled all over the UK and oversees working on various shows
Then, in 2007, I took on a huge challenge and started my own entertainment agency, working with local entertainers and venues arranging bookings which before long was operating all over the UK. However one of my biggest passions is in comedy, which led me to create ‘Jokers! Comedy’ which focuses on finding new up and coming talent and providing high quality comedy acts to venues all over the world. It was this passion that lead me to working with Actz and in 2014 I was privileged enough to become part of the Actz Team.
Now, as Sales Manager for Actz, I have continued to work closely with my clients and entertainers as well as building new relationships and creating new business opportunities. It has also allowed me to continue my passion working on ‘Jokers! Comedy’ as well as being involved in the scouting for ITV’s The X Factor and most recently, Britain’s Got Talent winner 2016, Richard Jones.
In the 2 years I have been with Actz, I have seen the company blossom into a brilliant agency and a great place to work. I’m surrounded by highly motivated, individuals whose energy and passion for their jobs capture exactly what it means to work in the entertainment industry.
