    About me

    As a Theatre Electrician, Re-Lighter and Lighting Designer I have a proven track record for delivering first-rate lighting within venues, and for intuitively creating and re-creating lighting design. My key strengths include: a wide ranging practical and technical skill set and the ability to apply them to situations with flexibility and resourcefulness; successfully mastering new equipment and utilising new skills quickly; a natural flare for design and realisation of lighting; excellent leaderships skills; organising and managing teams; thriving in high pressure situations with inventive problem solving abilities; prioritising workload to remain calm and productive to achieve targets; creating and maintaining high production values with great attention to detail and excellent working knowledge of Health & Safety.
