    About me

    I am an enthusiastic and reliable worker, constantly pushing myself to achieve the best I can. Working on a range of productions in various roles has given me experience of operating within a budget and managing spending, as well as organising and leading a team. I enjoy meeting new people and working with others as well as tackling new challenges that come my way. Art and theatre are a lifelong passion of mine which I am eager to pursue as a career.

    Professional Recommendations

    Ali Anderson-Dyer Director

    I worked with Rachel during my production of The Fastest Clock in the Universe at the BAC and I am very happy to thoroughly recommend her to anyone looking for a talented, imaginative, hard-working, dedicated and trustworthy designer. Due to a variety of other productions and commitments, Rachel was unable to accept the role of set and costume designer on the production. However, I felt so strongly about her work I managed to convince her to assist the designer we later employed so that the show still benefited from her talent. This was one of the best decisions I made during the entire process as she worked tirelessly and was a constant support to everyone on the design team. Her ideas are always intelligent and creative and working with her is pure joy. I am currently working with Rachel on two other productions and look forward to many more in the future.
