    About me

    Since age 15 I have been fascinated by the technology and psychology of a good lighting design and have studied lighting both academically and practically.

    At Diploma level I completed a 2 year Production Arts course.

    On this course I was able to sample all specialities in a working production environment.

    I specialised in Lighting Design and Operations and was selected to design, budget for and then install the lighting requirements for some of their shows.

    I have much experience local crewing and was the Board operator for Sheffield Hallam's Student's Union for most of their club nights and corporate events.

    I was the in house technician at The Montgomery Theatre in Sheffield whilst at University and since leaving Sheffield I worked in a few theatres, the latest being Castleford Phoenix Theatre.

    I have settled at Alton Towers as part of a team of 3 who oversee all techincal elements of the entertainments team. We oversee their CBeebies, hotel, halloween and christmas products.

    I have a full clean driving licence.
