    About me

    Since I began my professional journey i have had the opportunity to collaborate on some exciting projects. I found my love for stage management and working with lights when I was 17 at college. I was offered the chance to deputy stage manage a performance of Macbeth at the Old Rep Theatre in Birmingham, I have been hooked ever since. Whilst studying at University in Liverpool I have been able to learn numerous stagecraft skills in many different areas. The knowledge I have gained has lead me to work with several up and coming companies on projects ranging from small to large. I intend to use these experiences as a stepping stone to what I hope will be a successful career.
