    About me

    I am a highly experienced CSM / SM and also work as a Prop Supervisor or buyer. As CSM I have recently specialized in site-specific shows, both indoor and outdoor, including dance work, and opera; I have also worked in rep theatres, seasonal opera, ballet, commercial/ no 1 tours of plays, and on musicals. Additionally I have worked as a Lecturer in Drama at University level and also as Production Manager and Tutor in Stage Management for GSA. I've been working in theatre for over 30 years.

    I have some experience in tour booking and general management as well.
