BIO

I have worked with the company for 8 years, starting in the Tunnel Nightclub. First, I worked on the bar before working my way up to management. 5 years ago I transferred to The Garage and have continued to expand my experience as General Manager.  Most of my experience has come from working for Hold Fast Entertainment.

Favourite Music

I enjoy many styles of music but I do love a good 80’s playlist. Especially on a night out!

Top Destinations

I enjoy seeing new places and love trying different types of food. Thailand was a beautiful place that I visited not long ago! My next trip will be to Las Vegas and Miami! Hopefully I can see the Grand Canyon by helicopter when I go.

I’ve worked with Hold Fast Entertainment for four years now.

Indie with a wee slice of pop-punk and techno dunked nicely in house.
