    About me

    Having spent several years as a "multi-skilled venue technician", and then touring for the last 4 years, I've found my direction in theatre with my last few tours, specializing in stage and carpentry.

    Moving shows week to week, knowing the venues, knowing the crews, and thinking forwards about the next move. Supportive of other departments, working well by myself or with others, all that matters is the show goes up on time and looks as good on a Monday as it does on a Saturday!

    Currently: Production Carpenter - Sunset Boulevard.

    Touring for 5 years in various roles.

    Most Recently: Deputy Master Carpenter with Matthew Bourne's The Red Shoes

    Previously: Touring Carp / Auto 2 with Priscilla Queen of The Desert
