    Additional Skills

    I'm very often in a position to lead teams and I feel I'm very good at motivating people and getting the best out of them. Am proficient in shows that require 'Timecode", and am able to operate QLab and Ion lighting boards. One of my favourite jobs is props sourcing and maintanence. I have a lot of contacts within the West End due to the wide range of my career and If I can't do something, I know someone that can. I find it very easy to learn plots and to switch between them at short notice. Also I'm that weird person that loves a fit up! The creation of a show is beautiful and seeing how proud everyone is on first night.......

    Additional Information

    I'm a very upbeat person that adores what I do, I want my show to succeed and to be the best at what I do... I'm also, I'm told, a very mumsy stage manager....My cast's welfare is a big focus for me, if they're happy then my team are doing our jobs properly.

    Industry Awards

    I've won none personally....... but I'm lucky to have worked on shows that have.

    About me

    I'm a loyal and dedicated Stage Manager. I have many years of experience in various areas of theatre. I enjoy working within a team and can get along with almost anybody. I'm a very positive person and I really enjoy my work.
