Lighting Design

About Me

I am a lighting designer currently based in London, UK. I have a vast amount of experience working within the live entertainment industry including many West End theatres. I have a keen eye for design, and a passion for storytelling, Followed with extensive expertise in CAD, 3D and practical skills.  I am a good project manager, with excellent communication and an ability to stick to time and budget constraints. I desire to create and perfect the design needs of any future employer. With a strong interest in themed attractions I believe to be immersed and transported into a three-dimensional fantasy worlds is not only fun and exciting, but a necessity to escape from every day life.
