I began my career in lighting design in my first year at the University of Oxford. A friend of mine needed a technician for a show she was producing; I thought "how hard can it be?" and offered to help her out. I quickly discovered that there was much more to it than I thought, but I loved every minute of it and immediately caught the lighting bug. Since then I've worked on more than thirty student productions, as well as some professional shows, and have previously worked as a casual technician at both the Oxford Playhouse and the Old Fire Station theatres. Although I specialise in theatre, I also have experience in lighting dance and opera, as well as concerts, events, and lighting for camera. In 2019, I became a member of the National Youth Theatre as a lighting designer, and have also acted as the lighting adviser for Oxford University Theatre Technicians and Designers (TAFF). More recently, I was awarded a place on the Association of Lighting Designers' 2020 Lumiere scheme.
As my friends will testify to, talking about lighting is my favourite pastime, so if you'd like to get in touch either to inquire about my availability, or simply just to ask some questions, I'd love to hear from you! You can find my contact details below, or on the "Contact" page.
