I trained under the in-house head of Lighting at the Royal Shakespeare company in Stratford upon Avon where I discovered my enthusiasm and eye fir lighting temperament for lighting design, and worked on many productions. I have since worked as an associate designer in lighting roles for varying scales of stage productions, as well as designing lighting for theatre and opera.

I worked on productions of Tales of Ovid directed by Tim Supple and Richard II directed by Steven Pimlott as lighting operator/ technician and then worked as the Technical Director and Lighting Designer for several theatre companies and theatres. I pursued my career as a creative and decided to work in London to fully realise a career in lighting design.

I am currently a Visiting Lecturer at the Royal School of Speech and Drama as well as designing the lighting for Plays, Operas, Ballets, Musicals and Drama schools around the UK.

Design work has been very steady for me and became more frequent as time progressed and I have since branched out into sound design and video design. I'm affiliated with the Association of Lighting Designers, of which I am an active professional member.

I am always interested in participating in exciting and engaging collaborations in circus, theatre, music, opera, musicals and dance anywhere in the world!

I am also a co-artistic Director for Stage Splinters Theatre Company
