    About me

    Since completing a training course in stage management and technical theatre I have been working as a freelance lighting engineer for 7 years working on a variety of different shows gaining experience in rigging, programming and operating lighting desks, intelligent and conventional lighting for a variety of different events including theatre, concerts and exhibitions.

    For 4 years I worked for a theatre production company, were I was involved in the planning, sourcing, prepping and maintaining of touring equipment, then moved on to be the touring Lighting designer, chief electrician and re-lighter. Before I left the company I designed the lighting for the European tour of Cirque Du Ciel, ShangHi.

    Most recently I have been working on Yes Prime Minister as a Technical ASM were I have gained a more in-depth knowledge of sound and AV.
