    About me

    I am a freelance tech/prod manager specialising in performance and dance, mainly touring (both European and international). Very skilled at relights and problem solving. I most enjoy the challenge of presenting touring work to the highest standard, especially if I have to improvise lighting, directly working with and reacting to the artists on stage. I started working as a stage manager in various reps, ended up as technical manager at the ICA for 6 years, and fell in love with live art.
