    Professional Recommendations

    Patrick Watson Lighting Technician

    I have worked with David on several projects.He has a wide knowledge of rigging and lighting within the entertainment industry and delivers consistent high standards in all his work. He is a pleasure to work with and I hope to work on many more projects with him in the future.

    Paul Webb Company Stage Manager

    David was recently an exceptional work colleague. His attention to detail, working technical knowledge and can do attitude, helped run the entire Assembly George Square Gardens Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, (Jazz, Food and Fringe) smoothly, during extremely tight and pressurised circumstances. Always in a calm and helpful manner, it would be a privilege to work with such a talented individual again.
