    About me

    I am a highly conscientious and creative individual from a design background with four years’ experience working in the theatre and live events industry, recently as Design Assistant on the Baku 2017 Islamic Solidarity Games Opening Ceremony with prolific event production company Betty Productions.

    Able to utilise a creative eye as well as logical problem solving, I develop and rationalise design ideas; applying knowledge of construction techniques and industry standards, whilst working within the parameters of a project both spatial and budgetary. Working closely alongside both technical and design teams, I efficiently liaise to achieve practical and achievable solutions of the highest possible standard, whilst honouring the design concept at all times.

    Since 2013 I have undertaken the role of Design Assistant for Joanna Scotcher. During this time, my role has involved but not been limited to: research and design pitch development; model making; acting as associate designer where necessary; running teams of people; art directing; CAD draughting in both 2D and 3D; and being an active team member in production meetings and discussions. Since February 2015 I have taken over the role of exclusively producing CAD models and technical drawings for all of Joanna Scotcher’s productions that I have worked on.

    I also have experience in managing budgets, set design and construction, hosting design presentations, client liaisons, props supervising; costume design; exhibition design; and scenic painting.

    Committed to the union of creativity and precision I develop my work in keen detail, specialising in the use of CAD to aid design, refine detail and achieve full realisation of an idea. Although a natural leader and fully able and confident to work independently and take initiative; I believe that collaboration is key and enjoy working as part of a team, learning from each other, constantly pushing and testing the boundaries of a project in order to create a work that all involved find fresh, exciting and innovating. With a desire to learn and to be challenged, I constantly push myself to achieve my full potential and to succeed at all my endeavours.
