    About me

    I am an experienced DSM on large-scale musicals, opera and plays. Also I have experience of rep and repertoire theatre and site-specific productions. I have mostly worked on original or revived productions from the starting creative and rehearsal process, plus occasional stints of taking over a position mid-run.
