    About me

    I currently work as a Theatre Technician at the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton. I work mainly in the areas of lighting and sound, but am also regularly involved with all technical aspects of theatres productions, such as flying, scenic construction and CAD. Preceding this employment I studied for a BA in Theatre Design and Production at Trinity College, Carmarthen, where I studied both design and technical aspects. I greatly enjoy my work in all these areas and enjoy working collaboratively with the rest of the production team to create an exciting theatre experience.
