I AM LUCKY ENOUGH TO SAY THAT MY JOURNEY TO GET HERE TODAY HAS BEEN A WINDING PATH OF ADVENTURE, CHANCE MEETS AND SOME TOTALLY AWESOME PEOPLE!
Having trained in tap, ballet, modern and acro at Lorein School of Dance, I set off in search of a stage in sunnier climes at the age of 21. After a year as entertainer in Mallorca and Crete, life and love took me to what will now always be my second home, Berlin, for another enriching year.On my return to the UK I began back on the circuit choreographing and performing in shows and murder mysteries, which led me to my first business opportunity taking over the already established Unsolved Murder Mysteries (UMM).
I COMBINED MY LOVE OF THE CREATIVE WORLD WITH MY ADMIN SKILLS (WHO DOESN’T LOVE A GOOD SPREADSHEET!?) AND JOINED ELLEVATE ENTERTAINMENT IN 2017.
Realising that engaging with people and creating events to remember is what motivates me, I love working for Ellevate Entertainment, where I’m in charge of sourcing new acts and managing their online profiles.
I began my career as a youth worker, working with children and young people, whilst alongside this, I could also be found on the musical theatre stage. After eight years, I decided to take the plunge into the world of performing full time! As an actor and singer myself, I know the world of entertainment well, which is a great asset when it comes to my role as Head of Act Management at the company. As well as managing the acts I am also a member of a few of them! I sing with The Polka Dots, The Estrellas and The Disco Divas as well as starting my own solo jazz act ‘Eliza Sings’ (*ahem* the perfect accompaniment to a drinks reception or wedding ceremony!).
With all these acts, I have been fortunate enough to gig in some incredible places for some inspirational people. It really is the best job in the world! Outside of Ellevate Entertainment, I’m putting my admin skills (and spreadsheets) to further use by organising my upcoming wedding. Oh, and I’m partial to a gin and tonic, enjoy a good rom-com and make a banging cup of tea!
