    About me

    I am a multi-disciplinary theatre professional with credits spanning lighting design, stage management and producing. I have been interested in theatre from a young age and have been lucky enough to be working in theatre professionally for 5 years in various roles!

    In 2016, I had the privilege of company stage managing Beauty and the Beast at the Weston-Super-Mare Playhouse starring John Challis from Only Fools and Horses. Responsible for a large principle cast of 7, 6 professional dancers, band of 4 and a large running crew and 4 teams of juv enile dancers. I loved the challenge and to this date this has been one of my favourite projects.

    In 2017, I produced my first professional musical - a revival of Pageant which played in London for 3 weeks before transferring to Lighthouse Poole. I assembled an award winning creative team consisting of tony nominated Bill Russell as Director, Sam Spencer-Lane as Choreographer, Lauren Natasha-Hall as Costume Designer/ Supervisor and Katy Richardson as Musical Director. The production starred Olivier Award winner, Miles Western.

    I have been fortunate to also have been involved in a large number of live events as lighting designer, including events for companies such as Nissan, Nerium and more.
