    About me

    I am a London based set designer, scenic artist and set dresser. My past clients include Olivier nominated Alice’s Adventures Underground (the Vaults), immersive theatrical adventure experience Time Run, award winning physical theatre company The Outbound Project’s show 12 Million Volts (New Diorama Theatre; The Space; Marine Theatre; Touring) and Les Enfants Terribles’ The Terrible Infants (Wilton’s Music Hall).

    As well as designing my own work I am currently working as an assistant designer for Joanna Scotcher on several productions, including Emilia (Shakespeare’s Globe) and Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch) and Madhouse: re-exit (Shoreditch Town Hall).
