Director Lighting and Visual Designer Accessibility Consultant

Lighting and Visual Designer • Director • Accessibility Consultant

My Lighting and Visual Design work mainly focuses on the areas of theatre and dance.

As a Director I specialise in text-based performance, and have a bold and contemporary style, with collaboration at its heart.

All of my work has a strong focus on diversity, inclusion and access.
