    About me

    I am a freelance production technician have just graduated from Central School of Speech and Drama. I have a passion for live events and theatre; I have experienced a wide range of live events from west end musicals to fringe theatre and festival events, recently I have started to work more as a technical manager on small scale events and this is a career path I wish to follow. I have travelled across Europe, with work within the UK, France and the Czech Republic. I have an interest in travel photography, taking photos across the USA and Europe as a freelancer. In the future I hope to combine my traveling ambitions with my work both live events and photography.
