    Tom Turner Lighting Designer

    I have worked with Cairn as Technical Manager on a number of projects. His dedication and commitment to the show and aesthetic are always second-to-none. His drive to get the job done efficiently and well means every task is complete to the highest standard. He works incredibly hard, and fits very well within a team.
