    About me

    I am a freelance stage technician and carpenter working across many theatre companies, with the goal of becoming a Production Manager in the future. I have three years’ experience working on large and small-scale productions that have given me a methodical, practical and detail-oriented approach to a variety of tasks. As a Crew Chief, I have developed exceptional real-world leadership and interpersonal skills which I have found to be key in the unpredictable environment of theatre production.
