    About me

    I am a Professional Theatre Production Manager, based in London, working across all scales of shows in the subsidised theatre sector. I recently finished a 22 month contract working as a Deputy Production Manager at the National Theatre on London's South Bank, where I worked alongside the Production Managers in all three theatres; the Olivier, Lyttelton and Dorfman. Before joining the NT I was Production Manager of the Bush Theatre, running the technical department as well as Production Managing all of our in-house productions.

    I have also spent time working as a Freelance Production Manager and as Production Manager for the Taking Part Department at the Young Vic Theatre. Past clients include: The Gate Theatre, Young Vic, Frantic Assembly, Southwark Playhouse, Nuffield Theatre Southampton, The Print Room, Two's Company Productions, Spell Bound Productions and Coney.

    While the majority of my work is in the field of production management, I am also a highly competent technician in the fields of lighting, sound, stage and scenic construction. I am currently available for freelance work.
