Biography

I have a wide professional design experience of touring with classic and high art productions. Also London pantos, musicals, dance and corporate. 

In recent years I have also taken on some production design and management roles.

More information about my personal or professional identity:

I have always been a lover of art and design, I am also a keen photographer. Lighting design has been my passion from a young age, there is nothing better than creating some atmosphere with light! I now live in Hertfordshire with my family enjoying the countryside when I am not at work.
