I offer international tour management, merchandise management and driving services from my bases in Yeovil, UK and Poznan, PL. 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 artists.

Whilst tailoring a tour to the needs of an artist, 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 illegal 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 via the contact form to discuss how I can help with your tour.
