    About me

    I am a confident, enthusiastic and reliable individual who is highly self-motivated and strives to create a pleasant yet efficient working environment. I enjoy opportunities that allow me to work as part of a team whilst also being able to work efficiently as an individual. I work well to given instructions but also hold great initiative to complete tasks without instruction. I work well under pressure and I am driven to always do my best to deliver high standards to strict deadlines. I am always keen to learn new skills and gain further knowledge of the technical production industry so that I can further my career.

    I have been developing my skills and knowledge throughout studying specialized courses at college and university. Aside from studying I have develop a working knowledge of the industry by working freelance, on plays, musicals, concerts and many others fulfilling many different job roles. As part of my job roles I have come across using a wide range of equipment. I am a competent user or Grand MA 2 lighting consoles as well as being equally as competent in the use of the ETC Eos range of consoles such as the Element, Ion, Gio and Eos, and also a varied amount of Zero88 Consoles. The list below represents just some of some Brands and products that I have had varied degrees of experience with Such as visualization software’s (WYSIWYG), as well as many different types of lighting fixtures including a wide range of generic and intelligent fixtures. I am also quite confident with power distribution and electrics, as well as working at height, rigging and de rigging of equipment. I have had experience of work both on and off site whether it is theatres, music venues or warehouses.
