    About me

    I enjoy all aspects of production, live music shows and musical productions. I have been involved in a variety of shows including Live Music & Theatre Productions. From this I have learnt that the different lighting states and styles are fundamental to the overall production of the show as well as the importance of sound and many other professions such as Stage Management & Audio Visual. On the other hand with the current work I am undergoing at the moment working on board cruise ships within the Hotel/Entertainment Department,

    I have developed many skills and acquire new knowledge for example working with a diversity of people on board from many nationalities, keeping to tight schedules as well as working with the variety of lighting & automation systems.

    Have studied Production Management and understanding the fundamentals as Assistant Production Manager I am developing my skills and knowledge of what it takes to be a Production Manager and currently in training homing my skills. At same time broaden my skills and knowledge for video and lighting designing i.e experimenting with colour, effects, the atmosphere and depth I want to audience and the artist to feel as well as programming using the GrandMA 2 and storing video cues via Green Hippo and the use of LED walls, to enhance the shows.

    Work extremely well under pressure and enjoy preparing with plenty of time ready for the show. I am an excellent team player and enjoy meeting new people, and working together to put on a successful show. I have a great enthusiasm for the industry as I enjoy in what I accomplish out of my technical experiences. I am well organised, punctual and reliable in completing jobs that have been set. I am pro active and able to get on with jobs without close supervision. Excellent team player and supervise a team.

    Someone who loves to get involved in other professions to grasp a basic knowledge and skills in those specialisms such as sound, video but mainly Lighting Design & Production/Technical Management. In addition I have been a Lighting, Special Effects & Pyrotechnician on board Disney Cruise line in the Walt Disney Theatre.
