    About me

    I'm seeking fulfilling employment, primarily in technical provision and building management in theatre, live music and other entertainment or creative venues or events.

    My most recent role, for which I relocated to Edinburgh, was as Technical and Building Manager at Edinburgh Playhouse, the UK’s largest capacity traditional theatre auditorium, with over 3000 seats.
