Hello! - I am a designer and lover of technology, graduating from Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, London in 2014. Through my BA in Theatre Production Arts I have expanded my skill-set into set design, stage management, theatre lighting/sound and digital production, specialising in design and applied arts in my final year and achieving a first class honours. Alongside theatre opportunities I work full-time as a graphic designer for web and print as well as being employed as a casual theatre technician.

I aspire to work as a full-time creative in an art department for theatre/TV/film and enjoy to work across both digital and traditional media.

Notable clients I have worked with include: National Theatre, Universal Music, Nickelodeon, Dreamworks and Qdos Entertainment.
