Team KVA has grown once again. As tradition upholds, that means we get to sit down with the new recruits and ask them a bunch of questions. Enjoy!

So, welcome Alice! How did you find your first day?

Overwhelming, funny and impressive. The KVA team really know their stuff!

Tell us a bit about your background…

I started my career in production in the Music, TV and Live Entertainment industries; both running around back stage and in the office. I was that person at a festival in the wellies, hi vis with a clipboard standing at the side of the stage, looking very tired and sunburnt! From then I went into logistics and distribution in John Lewis, which was a lot less creative and a lot more strategic.

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?

In 2012, whilst on tour with Blur in Sweden, someone dared me from side stage to stage dive into a crowd of random people. It was actually terrifying! But I did it and came out without any serious injuries and all of my limbs intact!
