I am a 23 year old theatre technician and lighting designer based in Newcastle Upon Tyne.

Across the last 5 years I have worked in venues of all sizes across the country, both on in house and touring productions.

I love experimentation both with my designs and with new hardware and software. 

I am highly proficient with ETC EOS boards and have substantial experience of QLab programming and live sound mixing.
