Biography

Ollie has been involved in the theatrical community his whole life, and took his first technical role in a production of Roald Dahl’s "The Witches", at the age of twelve.

Since then, he has worked on hundreds of shows at various venues, making his West End debut in 2022, at the London Palladium. His lighting design credits include shows for a wide variety of companies, and several at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, for which his designs received much praise in reviews.

He is currently working as a followspot operator at the National Theatre until late August 2024.
