what we're up to
I am a firm believer that having a career which you love is one of the main sources of happiness, and I am delighted to have found just that working at PEEL. I graduated from RWCMD with a degree in creative music technology, and then put the skills I learnt into practice as Events Technician at the Wales Millennium Centre.
I moved on to work as Studio Manager and Associate Composer for John Hardy Music, based in Cardiff. I developed my skills there by collaborating to produce original bespoke music for a wide variety of media including TV, Radio, Theatre, and much more.
This experience certainly worked in my favour when I joined PEEL. I now regularly create backing tracks as well as bespoke original compositions “in house” for use within our Entertainment shows, and co-ordinate most musical projects across PEEL.
With such variety in my work, I’m certainly never bored or short of things to do!
After studying Performing Arts at College, I have worked as an Executive in Hotels, a Sales Manager for Richard Branson’s Virgin Vie and Jamie Oliver’s Homeware.
Being the Recruitment Manager at PEEL, every day is a challenge. It is paramount we find the right performers – especially Male Singers and Dancers (they are a rare breed)!
Recently I have been casting for the Winter teams, holding auditions in Yorkshire and London and then matching people with returners to form a perfect team.
The teams are made up of everything from Show Team, Entertainment Hosts, Technicians and Musicians, and onboard Management.
My favourite moment within PEEL has definitely been the launch of our newest ship, TUI Discovery. Away from PEEL, I have been lucky enough to perform at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and also recently won an award for Best Pantomime Fairy at the Regional theatre Awards…you never lose it!
I regularly visit the ships to offer support to the teams onboard, and although it can be challenging it is definitely very rewarding!
I started working for the company in 1994 when it was The Daley partnership at Tetley’s Brewery wharf. Prior to that I was an Actor and Company manager in touring theatre productions.
I became Actor/Manager at Tetleys Brewery Wharf then moved into cruising in 2000. I have had many different roles across the company and been heavily involved with Ship start-ups as well as many of the other projects the company has undertaken, such as Midsummer Night’s Dream, Black beauty and Freerunning@.
Most recently I have been involved with the Tui Discovery start up and especially programming of Light Entertainment production, filming for Virtual Bands and Virtual Dance projects, with none other than Anton Du Beke, as well as installing the new interactive family game show Splash Live!
I’m Heavily involved with recruitment of Light Entertainment hosts, musicians and technicians across the fleet. I love to be busy and this job is perfectly suited to me, that’s probably why I’ve been with PEEL for so long!
