    About me

    I have been employed in many roles on a large range of productions including pub theatre, world-class opera and dance. Large scale West End musicals, UK touring, regional receiving and producing houses, amateur dramatics, children’s theatre, corporate events, private parties and award ceremonies. I have also worked in the Theatre & Circus fields at Glastonbury Festival for the last four years as a member of the Accreditation Team. We are the first and main point of contact for over 4000 performers and staff, where good people skills and strong communication skills can be put to the test.

    I have a lot of experience in scenery rigging, hemp, counterweight and performer flying supervision (manual and motor).

    For the last three years I have been employed as a scenic carpenter at a Scottish rep. theatre producing 8 shows a year. Adding this time as a bench joiner to my on site carpentry experience I am comfortable with new set builds or repairs, furniture making and restoration, props and effects. I also have basic painting and welding skills.

    I am comfortable with rigging from a lighting plan, focussing, stage LX operations and problem solving to a reasonable level.

    I take pride in my work and have a keen eye for detail, always aiming to achieve a high standard in all areas of production including Health and Safety and safe working practices. I am often on the look out for new companies to work for, new skills and techniques to learn, and new knowledge and experiences gain. With strong communication, team leadership and organisational skills, being self motivated and with a calm and practical approach any situation I can be an effective member of any team.
