    About me

    I have a long fruitful career in Theatre which has given me extensive knowledge of working practices, construction techniques, project management, and large repertoire running requirements.

    I'm currently in the middle of a large project to replace a manual double purchase flying system with a fully automated system, which has given me the desire to build on this large scale project management.
