    About me

    Currently in the UK looking for work, I have been working at the Royal Exchange theatre in Manchester as a multi-skill technician for a maternity cover before the pandemic, and I am now back as part of the theatre remobilisation team. I have started towards specialising in stage rigging and automation, including performer flying. I started training for this through being rigging staff at royal Caribbean international which included passing a flying by FOY examination on basic operation and maintenance of equipment.
