Summary

I am a highly motivated and passionate music professional with over five years experience in the music industry. Over this time I have demonstrated versatility and flexibility in the workplace whilst working across a number of areas including venue bookings, show logistics as well as marketing and promotion. I’ve worked within both sides of the booking process, which has given me a unique insight into the live touring realm.

  • Sourcing venue availabilities, booking and routing of tours
  • Preparing ticketing to coincide with tour announce/on sale deadlines
  • Collating and distributing ticket sales
  • General administration tasks such as contracts, worksheets, settlements and coordinating guest lists week to week
  • Maintaining a support submission database as well as managing incoming enquiries
  • Liaising with booking agents, venue bookers and managers, promoters, production teams and artist managers

Recommendations

Craig Unwin - Audio Director - Lifestyle Channels at Foxtel

Keaton is punctual, polite, a good communicator, has a solid understanding of Pro Tools and is keen to learn. He observed Voice Over recordings, voice direction, editing and mixing of promos. I also set Keaton a few basic editing and mixing tasks which he completed competently. He was a pleasure to have in my studio and I would recommend him for a junior role at any post production facility.
