My name is Johanna Coulson. I'm a musician, an art school administrator and also a Central Saint Martins MA student.

Over the past decade I have played a number of fun and exciting roles, including a cabaret performer, live arts producer, wedding singer, radio presenter, boom mic operator, tap dancer, stop motion animator, music reviewer, Cinderella, children's librarian and a Bookseller Rising Star in 2017 for my creative events work in libraries. Phew.

At the end of 2016, I started working as a Communications & Events officer for a creative arts university, where I have had the opportunity to work on a huge variety of events, ranging from graduation, creative careers fairs, mental health and wellbeing pop-ups and of course, Fresher's.
