    About me

    Having 6 years experience in the industry as everything from a carpenter to a rigger has allowed me to attack any role with enthusiasm and skill. I am particularly passionate about stage design and construction and through property renovation, I am constantly improving and honing my construction skills both as a hobby and as a professional practice. I create set and props for a large Performing Arts department on a daily basis and I can use inginuity and skill to keep budgets low and turnaround time high. As a postgraduate student of Central St Martins studing Applied Imagination in the Creative Industries I have a platform to explore my own creativity and design skills to the benefit of my employment. I am experienced in designing, rigging and operating sound and lights for theatre and live music events.
