As well as working on a range of professional productions, an area I am passionate about is the passing on of knowledge and supporting emerging artists in the notoriously difficult world of theatre. My current job involves me working regularly with the performing arts, drama and dance departments of one of the country's leading universities, in their state of the art spaces. This involves working along side academic staff and students, supporting their teaching and learning by providing high quality technical support and instruction on any shows or assesments they perform, including devised work, scripted work and local touring peices. I have worked with students from entry level to post graduate. I also reguarly plan, purchase and install technical equiptment into the performance spaces, ensuring they are up to date and fit for purpose.
In the past I have worked extensively with other education establishments including Grantham college, west nottinghamshire college, and several youth theatre and young company groups.
I hope to continue my work with local emerging talent, wether that be training and mentoring of technicians or providing high quality technical support for their productions.
