    About me

    I started out studying technical theatre for 2 years at college followed by further 2 years of engineering. I ended up working in the engineering industry for 5 years but always kept my passion for theatre. Before leaving my engineering job I was lucky enough to be offered work at the Marlowe theatre as freelancer on the Lx team which quickly lead to me having a 0 hour contract with the theatre. Over the last 4 Years working in the industry I have learnt a lot about all aspects of theatre. Especially the Lx department.

    Since the above I have been touring Cheif electrician for Birmingham stage company on Gangsta granny, Awful Aunty and Tom gates.
