Biography

I am a theatre lighting technician, EOS programmer, and lighting designer based in Wrexham, North Wales. I am currently in the final year of study of BA(Hons) in Lighting Design at Rose Bruford College in Sidcup, where I've had the privilege working on a range of shows as designer and programmer, including dance performances, actor-musician productions, and devised productions. I am willing to travel and have a car available.

My journey into the world of lighting began in 2013 with BTEC Level 2 Technical Theatre studies at Coleg Cambria, Wrexham. This was followed by a BTEC Level 3 in 2016 and a year-long joint technical apprenticeship with the Wales Millennium Centre, Theatr Clwyd and Cardiff & Vale College in October 2017. Building on the experience gained, I worked as a casual with a lighting bias at Theatr Clwyd from 2018 to 2020 before deciding to pursue further education at Rose Bruford College in 2021.
