    About me

    Theatre has always been my passion, however it wasn't until I started my Drama & Performance Studies degree at London South Bank University that I learnt my interest for stage management. In my second year of university I had my first placement as Deputy Stage Manager for a production of Macbeth directed by Frantic Assembly member Simon Pittman. This experience helped me understand the off-stage logistics that support the actors and the hundreds of technical events that need to happen in the right order for a successful show to unfold. During the course of the production, I was given basic training however I'd like the opportunity to strengthen my skills and understanding in order to further a career in stage management.

    I have the eagerness and determination to quickly grasp new concepts, the confidence and commitment to take control, the ability to easily work with a team and a great deal of energy to put into any job at hand.

    I'm recently completed a BA in Drama and Performance Studies at London South Bank University, however, I believe it's essential for me to gain experience practically and become more confident by not just acquiring knowledge from what I do but also from others around me.
