    About me

    I have experience of both producing and receiving shows in a range of venues. While I have worked for the Royal Opera House as a casual electrician for many years I would like to highlight my work in the Linbury Studio Theatre as some of the most varied and challenging. I am required to not only work in a theatre but around the Royal Opera House event spaces for corporate, education and development events of varying sizes. For example on the prestigious "Deloitte Ignite", a yearly multiple venue arts festival produced by ROH2, I was required to rig, focus and program lighting for performance art, music and dance in very limited time frames. In this scenario we are often working to strict risk assessment which means inventing tidy and unobtrusive ways to hang lights in public areas.

    Offstage, I have done extensive electrical maintenance work in dark periods for both venues at the ROH - PAT [testing], cleaning, inspecting and repairing lanterns, scrollers and cables. My time with the Caravan Stage Company also required me to fix and clean their 20 year old stock of lights and cables! This project was interesting because the maintenance resources were poor and I had to manage my own time.

    I would like to highlight the ten weeks I spent working for the Caravan Stage Company in Sicily as a Co-Lighting Designer. I adapted to working in a large international team very quickly whilst working in an unusual space. Taking my rope access experience to the masts of a boat required flexibility and initiative. Working outside also presents challenges I had not previously encountered in a theatrical space.

    Further to my stage electrics roles, I have frequently assisted in the fitting up of sets and performed stage duties in performance, moving scenery and managing props. For "Simply Cinderella" at Curve Theatre in Leicester, I ensured that the wing I was in charge of performed the cues accurately and to a high standard. I have a decent working knowledge of stage carpentry and rigging, a highlight of this in practice would be during last summer's dark period in the Linbury, when I assisted with fitting fourteen new stage traps in the sprung floor. I am also competent with sound equipment and have operated and programmed shows using various control systems such as the Akai Sampler S6000 and Q Lab.
