    About me

    My theatre career started in ballet at La Scala Ballet School in Milan and Ecole Supérieure de danse de Cannes Rosella HIGHTOWER where I developed my understanding and enjoyment of live performance.

    I started to be interested in Stage Management whilst performing. As my interest grew, I began to read around the subject, volunteering at concerts and shows and working front of house. I also volunteered for the Olympic and Paralympic opening and closing ceremonies where I was hugely inspired by the mass cast director, Steve Boyd, who directed thousands of volunteers with such skill, diplomacy and humility and it is during that time that I realised that I wanted to pursuing a career in stage management.

    Both my academic dance background, and my drama school training in the UK and Europe have allowed me to meet people of varied cultures and different ways of thinking, who share my passion for theatre. This has helped me to grow into a sensible, independent and adaptable person. I am a hardworking and collaborative team player who enjoys learning and helping others.
