Michael, why event management?

I actually started my career in theatre, however I quickly wanted to branch out and ensure I had a job that no day was the same. It’s safe to say that’s the case in event management. I enjoy working with clients and suppliers to build creative and unique spaces. This job allows you to continually see the hard work pay off at each individual event; which is continually rewarding.

Where have you come from?

I’m originally from Edinburgh. However, I trained in Production & Technical Arts: Stage & Screen at The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. Since graduating I’ve worked in events, festivals, fringe theatre and London’s West End as a freelance Stage & Event Manager.  

When you're not managing events?

It’s safe to say Event Management keeps you on your toes and it’s so easy to allow it to fill up every minute of the day but when I get time off, I enjoy attending the theatre, socialising with friends, checking out new food and drink spots in Edinburgh plus always ensuring there’s time to spend with family.
