About

I am a Cardiff-based performance designer, assistant and maker. I graduated from an MA in Design for Performance at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in 2017, following a few years of emplyment within prop making including mould-making for Madame Tussauds Wax Figure Productions. 

Armed with strong technical realisation skills from my previous employment, my MA further challenged my creative thinking alongside enhanced my skills in researching, model making, AutoCAD and Adobe Creative Suite programmes.  In addition, it has provided me with experience to work efficiently within a team in order to create a wide variety of high quality productions.

Following two years of professional experience working as a freelance theatre designer and design assistant, I am currently devoted to transferring these skills into high end TV and film.
