    About me

    I'm a Lighting Technician and Designer. I've undertaken various roles on UK and International Tours. I currently hold the position of Senior Adviser for Lighting and Video for Cirque Du Soleil Tour Shows Division.

    As a past time when not on the road or in a dark theatre like to take to the air and fly vintage aircraft.
