    About me

    I've worked professionally backstage in Theatre since 1994.

    Currently I'm one of the Production Carpenters for Cameron Mackintosh's Les Miserables Tour, and also now on to the Phantom of the Opera UK tour.

    Recent work includes Production Carpenter for the Miss Saigon & Mary Poppins UK Tours as well as a number of other large touring musicals.

    Employed as a 'Go Anywhere' Technical Manager for the 2017 Manchester International Festival to carry out Prod Carp, LX work and IPAF work as required. Lots of IPAF work......

    Formerly Head of Production at Dundee Rep. Theatre.

    I do a lot of freelance LX work as well, although the last time I board opp'ed the Strand 520 was standard.....

    I've previously worked with the National Theatre of Scotland, Scottish Ballet & Scottish Opera, as well as a number of other Ballet and Opera companies around Britain.

    I also work for Tower Productions and CORE Event Services, both based in Edinburgh for events & concerts installing site power, rigging & lighting.

    I'm a member of The Theatres Trust and Frank Matcham Society and I'm very interested in theatre history and collect theatre books and ephemera. I'm also a huge Strand Electric nerd....

    Oh, and Land Rovers, I like Land Rovers......
