I did this all without realising I had crossed that shitty confidence barrier that was holding me back, but yeah, eyyy :D

I'm really glad that live sound worked out better for you than it did for me. Confident women are a rarity in the industry, but the ones who are around command a lot of respect. Good luck!

Thanks guys :) It's scary how many times I came close to giving up, thank fuck for supportive family and friends, and being a stubborn ass bitch, that's all I can say.

Yeah! A lot of the time though it's:

'Live Sound Engineer, what's that? Do you work in a recording studio'
'No, I do the sound for shows'
'Oh so you're a Roadie?'
'Not really, I operate a mixing desk'
'Oh so you're a DJ!'
*siggh*

On a related note, been offered an interview for Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Everything's comin up Hamdir :D
