After training at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, I’ve worked in theatre for over 20 years and lighting design is my passion.   I specialise in small to medium scale theatre and gain immense satisfaction in transforming non theatre spaces into amazing venues as well as replicating first class lighting designs with limited resources.

My stage and production management background also equip me with the ability to have a versatile and measured approach to new projects.

Four years ago, I completed a sold out tour of Australia with two shows.  I lit and production managed both shows including shipping both sets to Australia.  It gave me experience and insight into international touring.  We went back to Arts Centre Melbourne in February two years ago with another show.

Current projects:

Wind in the Willows – The Brewhouse, Taunton.  December 2021

Peter Pan – Octagon Theatre, Bolton.  December 2021

Antigone – Storyhouse, Chester.  October 2021

Sanctuary – Ffwrnes Theatre, Llanelli.  Light and sound installation.  Feb – July 2021

One Man, Two Guvnors – Octagon Theatre, Bolton.  May 2022
