Alex joined Severn Arts as Director of Operations & Resources in December 2021 and is a passionate enabler of creativity and culture who loves a spreadsheet! Always preferring to be behind the scenes, Alex started off as a theatre lighting technician. After a spell crewing hotel narrowboat pairs and trialling a career in audit, he eventually moved into Theatre Front of House and Operations. He spent a number of years as General Manager at The Courtyard Centre for the Arts in Hereford before moving to Yeovil as Operations Manager for the Octagon Theatre and Westlands Entertainment Venue. When not involved in culture and music, Alex can usually be found messing about on the rivers and canals of the Midlands aboard his narrowboat, Moonshine.
