    About me

    I started building for set designers in theatre with my work evolving into events and commercial spaces. I'm equally happy realising a designers concept or working directly with a client in a more creative capacity, this works well given my material and construction knowledge. I do enjoy getting hands-on and seeing something take form over time.

    I am able to research and create mood boards, design to a presentation stage including 3D rendered pre-visualisations and animated walkthroughs. Going on to conduct site surveys I can create materials / labour budgets and can design efficient production workflows then organise logistics to and from the site including installation and take down / recycling.

    I can provide risk assessments & method statements and have developed great supplier relationships offering competitive pricing and next day delivery on materials and tools.
