    About me

    I am a multidisciplinary designer and maker. I started working professionally in theatres while studying Drama and Theatre Arts BA (Hons) at Goldsmiths, University of London. Since graduating in 2009 I have worked in a wide range of technical and design roles. In 2015 I returned to education to complete a BTEC HNC in Costume.

    I have significant experience in Arts Education and Production Management.
