    About me

    I graduated from the Specialist Lighting course at RADA in 2008, and worked subsequently as the Lighting Board Operator at the Royal Court, and as a freelance technician at a number of venues around London, including the National Theatre and Sadlers Wells. I have programmed shows for a number of wonderful Designers, including Paule Constable, Neil Austin, Jon Clark, Mark Henderson and Jo Town.

    I took rather a lengthy break from the industry from 2010 and am currently reestablishing myself as a freelance Lighting Designer, Associate, and Programmer.

    At present I am the acting Chief Electrician for the Mercury Theatre in Colchester, overseeing their Mercury at Abbey Field project while the theatre undergoes refurbishment.
