Profile

Through the usual mix of school drama and then at the City of Westminster College, I started work with a local Sound company In Colchester.

After two years with them I moved to a local production company and worked with them for 6 years, learning all about the corporate production world, moving my way up the company, from a YTS scheme trainee, through all of the different production disciplines to Senior production Manager.

I left the production company in September 2001 to become freelance and soon found out that this was the life for me.

I love the challenge of a new project, fixing it and then moving on to the next one.

I also love working in a number of different disciplines and I find my knowledge of all of the production disciplines very helpful in being a Production Manager as I have a deep understanding of where everyone is coming from when there is a problem.

85% of my year is working as a Production Manager, different clients use me for different skills and I am happy to fit in any team in anyway.

Below is a list of some of the other roles:

  • Technical Director
  • Production Manager
  • Technical Manager
  • Project Manager
  • Stage Manager
  • Crew Chief
  • Rigger
  • Sound Technician
  • Pyrotechnic Technician / Rigger
  • Lighting Technician
  • AV Technician
