Tell us about yourself & how you got into arts marketing.
I have always been very passionate about English Literature and the performing arts.
I studied both English and music in University, and have worked as a professional vocalist. During my PR studies at Simon Fraser University, several instructors recommended that I go into arts marketing as they felt that my background in the performing arts, coupled with my past experience as a communications specialist would assist me in marketing artists in creative industries.
Upon graduation, I was fortunate to work as a Public Relations Consultant for a Cue Creative Consulting, and had several clients from prominent arts organizations in Vancouver.
I later became the internal PR Specialist and Managing Director for The Virtual Stage – a professional multimedia theatre company. Through this experience I discovered that I love helping artists to shine, and feel blessed to have found a career that combines both of my passions!
Where is the best place you have travelled & why?
My father is from Calcutta, India. He met my mother in England, and then they moved to Canada. Years later, I found myself working overseas and was able to travel to India to reconnect with my relatives. Everyone was very warm, welcoming and excited to introduce me to every aspect of Indian culture. It was a very special trip!
What was the first show you remember seeing as a child?
I went to see a professional production of Les Misérables with my family when I was 7 years old. I was absolutely spellbound.
If you could grab a coffee with one artist – living or dead – who would it be and why?
I would love to grab a coffee with Ella Fitzgerald. She is my favourite Jazz vocalist of all time. Her voice is pure magic.
What are you most looking forward to in your new role at LMPR?
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with my talented team members to dream up creative, informative and engaging marketing and media relations campaigns for our clients. I am also excited to attend all of our clients’ shows. It’s going to be a very exciting and busy year!
