Details of experience:
I have been working in event production since 2001 and founded Firefly Solar in 2007, successfully developing a range of solar power based products and services for use in the event and broadcast industries. A number of these products are now also being used as permanent primary power sources in developed and developing countries spanning 3 continents. In 2010 I was appointed as Sustainability Consultant for PAPA projects, developing and implementing the sustainability strategy for Lovebox Festival (UK) and achieving 2 star Industry Green certification for the event in that same year, one of only 2 large UK festivals to achieve this rating. I am a member of the UK Festival Power Providers Forum and consult on how to reduce UK festival reliance on fossil fuels and how to further integrate the use of renewable power. I also sit on the UK Green Festival Forum steering group.
