    About me

    I have always been fascinated by storytelling and theatre in all its forms. As an undergraduate, I discovered a passion for lighting design and was heavily involved in student theatre, designing the lighting and providing technical support for over 20 shows during my degree.

    I love to travel, and have experience as the Lighting Designer or Technician on multiple touring productions. In 2016, I designed and accompanied a tour of Hamlet across Switzerland and Belgium, and was the sole lighting and sound technician on a comedy tour across the UK and the US.

    I have worked as an Assistant and Associate Lighting Designer, assisting William Reynolds at the Cambridge Arts Theatre (2016), and Rory Beaton on a UK tour of Maklena (2018).

    In the past year, I have completed an MA in Shakespeare Studies alongside working as a Research Assistant at Shakespeare’s Globe. I have also pursued my passion for lighting in the professional arena, most recently for the professional debut of ERIS at the Bunker Theatre (2018).
