Theatre Designer

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Early
  • Freelancer: Available

London-based Set and Costume Designer with a particular interest in site-responsive and immersive performance, and how that intimacy can be translated into traditional theatre buildings.  I am also drawn to music-related projects including live concerts, festivals and costuming for bands.

I trained at Wimbledon School of Art and Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. I am an associate creative of Theatre Delicatessen, and have worked with Punchdrunk, dreamthinkspeak and Geraldine Pilgrim in various roles.

I live in a Victorian funeral parlour and am a recovering hoarder.
