    About me

    I have been working as an ASM/DSM/SM solidly since graduating in stage management from Bristol Old Vix in 2017..

    I have considerable DSM experience from calling pantomimes, as an ASM on the book, working on amateur theatre musicals and at drama school. I am adept at calling shows and relish being on the book and enjoy watching a show take shape in rehearsals.

    I am also an experienced casual stage technician working at the York Grand Opera House.

    I am a competent and resourceful prop maker and have strong sourcing ability. I am confident on the book and covering rehearsals. I'm hard-working, enthusiastic and proactive individual who is willing to travel.
