    About me

    I am a competent, hard-working and enthusiastic technician, working mainly in lighting and production management.

    I have upwards of six years experience in the industry and currently work as a freelancer based in London, working on a wide range of events and productions. I hold an Honours degree in Mechanical Engineering from four years at Warwick University, where I used my time to not only forward my academic skills but also to gain valuable and meaningful experience in all aspects of Technical Theatre.
