Hello and welcome!

This page lists my creative experience in the entertainment industry. Since graduating with (BA) First Class Honours in Writing, Directing and Performance from the University of York (2014), each job has contributed something unique to my personal and professional development.

My background in Fine Art has supported a natural transition into design for performance, scenic painting and a wide range of work within the Arts. I enjoy the relationship between colour, space and light and as a result I often incorporate lighting design into my work.

In September 2020 I will be studying for a Masters Degree in Professional Theatre Design at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, specialising in access and sustainability within the industry. 

I am also part of an East Midlands based collective called B Team; we make theatre with a focus on environmental issues and offer workshops to raise awareness within local communities.
