Biography

A creative and innovative set and costume designer and recent graduate of Nottingham Trent University, winner of the 2016 Birmingham Opera Prize and the 2015 Theatre Royal Costume Design Prize.

Confident working individually and collaboratively, I have both designed and assistant designed work on a number of productions as a graduate. These roles presented opportunities of leadership, decision making, and practical experience whilst demonstrating excellent communication skills and technical ability.

As an ambitious individual, I hope to find opportunities to advance and pursue my skills. My sociability and confidence around different colleagues ensures I am trustworthy and reliable.

I enjoy using inventive approaches to my designs and narratives, ensuring a self-motivated and open-minded attitude to tasks. I enjoy creating moments of surprise, bringing the unexpected to audiences and finding unique, visually impressive ways to achieve this.


Previous works include:
Oedipus Set Designer & Maker (2016)
What I Go To School For Assistant Designer | Youth Music Theatre (2016)
Hubbub - A Musical Adventure Design Assistant (2016)
The Illumaphonium Installation Assistant (2016)


The desire and aim to further develop my artistry and become a freelance theatre designer/associate designer has increased during each project I have worked on.
