    About me

    I am a dedicated, confident and professional individual with a passion for Stage Management and technical theatre. Experienced in all disciplines in Stage Management, as a casual technician for various venues, and as Stage Crew, I have an excellent work ethic, with great time-management and organisational skills. Recognised by my previous colleagues as hard working and an integral member of the team who takes initiative, I'm always prepared to be a team-player or to work independently. I'm a flexible fast-learner who is able to meet deadlines using a range of industry related skills. I'm always driven to embrace new opportunities and challenges, and to learn on the job.
