    About me

    My personal ethos towards live performance is that every audience only see it once, and it is our job as professional theatre technicians to ensure that each and every audience member experiences the best possible incarnation of the piece when they attend, no matter what day or which venue they visit. Knowing I have had a part in providing this experience is something I actively enjoy.
