European tour manager, driver and merchandiser


I offer international tour management, merchandise management and driving services from my bases in the UK and Poland. I take care of transport and backline, travel itinerary and logistics, budget and accounts, accommodation and designing, sourcing and selling merchandise, for bands on their first visit to Europe and established international artists.

Whilst tailoring a tour to the needs of an artist, their management and business management, I choose to create a positive, friendly, inclusive and non-aggressive/confrontational environment. I do my best to ensure comfort, safety, wellbeing and success, find the best food, take in the best sights and keep things cost effective and on budget. I don't source recreational drugs or make unreasonable demands on others' behalf, in case that's your thing.

In 2010 I helped to form the tour company Elephant Riders with my friend Seb and I've since had the pleasure of touring with the incredible artists listed below. I love to collect photos and stories and keep creative whilst travelling. Get in touch by email to discuss how I can help with your tour.
