    About me

    Technical / Production Manager with a demonstrated history of working in the Theatre and Events Industry. Skilled in Sound, Stage Lighting and Power Distribution.

    I am confident that my presence the last 14 years in the industry and my background and skills in sound, stage lighting and AV installations are so effective that I’m able to work in any placement to the theatre/events industry following all the Health and Safety procedures.

    I have the skills and the experience to understand the needs of a production, from both sides - the venue's and a visiting company’s perspective from cumulative experience. I approach my job with commitment and have an excellent work ethos. I have a keen interest in the wellbeing of the people who work with me and their needs in the workplace (specially in arts festivals which can be so high pressure!) I like new challenges and to be engaged with people who love and devote themselves to making theatre.
