    About me

    During my sixteen years in professional theatre I have become patient, sensitive to others needs, able to work efficiently under pressure and to thrive as part of a team.

    I have worked in stage management teams in small regional theatres to large scale productions learning and honing my skills with each production.

    My first job at The Mill at Sonning Theatre has ingrained a sense of being a strong team player and going beyond your job role to ensure the production is as good as it can be. I truly believe theatre is a team game and to contribute to anther departments efforts if they are in need. To this end I have gained experience in dressing, lighting operator, sound operator, revolve operator, set painter, set dresser, costume and prop maintenance and fit ups.

    As a DSM I have experience in cueing busy shows with the usual light and sound to revolves, flys and pyros keeping health and safety as a priority

    I have worked on numerous shows with fight sequences and enjoy the creative process of seeing the fight choreographed to ensuring the sequence stays safe for the cast, leading fight calls and keeping communication flowing between fight director and cast.

    While DSM is where I believe my skills are strongest I really enjoy running a show from the wings as ASM. I have propped shows, sourcing and making required props as necessary. As ASM I have organised props, making lists and conducting preshow checks and creating inventory for shows that have are due to continue in different venues.
