Drew was the founder and creative force behind CubaDupa street
arts festival in Wellington founded in 2015. His love of Cuba
Street, with its unique energy and creative spirit, inspired his vision
to create an interactive street arts festival that celebrates diversity,
creativity and street culture. Drew was Artistic Director from 2015

Most recently he was the Digital and Social Media Producer for Tāwhiri: Festivals and Experiences on the 2019 Wellington Jazz Festival, Second Unit and the 2020 New Zealand Festival of the Arts. Other roles include Marketing Manager for The Glitter Garden, Musical Theatre Tutor at Te Auaha: NZ Institute of Creativity, Digital Producer at TAHI Festival and the Creative Producer of WITCH Wellington Music Theatre.
