About me

I currently work for Royal Caribbean International as a Light Technician. In this role I was in charge of running and maintaining 5 venues. I have had experience with Zoo Venues at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for two years as a duty technician and working at the Ustinov in the Theatre Royal Bath for Laurence Boswell’s the Spanish Golden Age. I've had work experience at the West Yorkshire Playhouse and for the Northern Ballet at Bradford Alhambra. I've also worked at the Egg Theatre in Bath. I made my own AV show and put it in Bath Abbey Vaults.
