I am a freelance lighting and sound designer with over twenty five years experience working with theatre, dance and circus companies around the world. I also work as a production and technical manager in addition to developing my own art and design ideas for objects, exhibitions and installations. In the Autumn of 2014 I relocated to South Wales after four years living and working in Germany.
