    Additional Skills

    I have excellent hand and machine sewing skills. I am experienced in breaking down, embroidery and garment construction, which I have been able to transfer into my work with props.

    Various jobs have required me to garnish a wealth of experience making and working with stage blood, including safe to eat blood bags, and also blood which had to be washable from the set every evening.

    Over the years I have become very proficient with Qlab for Techs and rehearsals.

    About me

    I am an extremely hard working, determined individual with a wide variety of experience in technical and stage management positions. My qualification in Theatre Costume provides me with many of the techniques that I use when working with props and costumes, whereas my HND Acting and Performance allows me to understand the rehearsal room and the overall production from the perspective of all stakeholders.

    The contribution I make to the output of the whole stage management team can be evidenced by my CV, with many former employers I worked with as an Assistant Stage Manager requesting that I return to take on the responsibilities of a Company Stage Manager after recognising the value I bring to their productions. In each of these roles, I continue to develop my ability to source, make, adapt and create new props and costumes, as well as striving to meet the highest possible professional standards in every aspect of my work.
