Be excellent to each other

Night Mayor of Vilnius and founder of MXF

I have always worked in the music industry. I emigrated from the UK to Vilnius, Lithuania in 2004, to break new ground, find new talent and take part in the growth of Eastern Europe. Since then I have promoted some of the biggest parties in the city, learnt the language, founded small businesses and NGO's, and travelled to Minsk, Kiev and Afghanistan. I now work for the state51 group, the UK's largest independent music distributor. I direct the NGO Music eXport Fund to educate and help musicians collaborate and reach international markets. In March 2015 I was elected to the City Council of Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. I served until 2019. I specialised in public order, human rights, and nightlife. From this work I became known as the Night Mayor of Vilnius, responsible for liason between the Council, the city's residents and the nightlife industry. In 2019 I founded Vilnius Night Alliance, a pressure group advocating for better nightlife in Vilnius. I love helping musicians, so get in touch with me with any questions and I will be glad to point you in the right direction.
