(For my one-page theatre CV, click here / clicca qui)
During the course of my fine art degree at Glasgow School of Art, my work became increasingly narrative and performance based. After graduating, I moved back to my home town of Loughborough where I joined Charnwood Community Theatre.
My ambition was always to direct, but I initially concentrated on acting, taking parts in productions of Savages, Road, Hobson's Choice, Edward II, Dangerous Liaisons, and The Revenger's Tragedy.
In all, during nine years with the group, I directed / co-directed five shows, wrote / adapted five, production-managed eight and was heavily involved with design work throughout. I was also treasurer for two years and chair for one.
Following my first professional job as assistant stage manager on a pantomime in 2003, theatre replaced video as my main professional activity until 2011. After this I concentrated on video for a while, until returning to more frequent theatre work in 2016.
I have worked mainly in stage management, with particular experience of touring, studio theatre, and site-specific work. My video-making experience has often led to me doing audio and video work for theatre - audio recording and editing, sound design, filming, video editing, and production of archival DVDs.
Finally, of all the shows I've seen my two favourites have been the multimedia "chamber opera" Jean Baptiste by Wayn Traub (Tramway, Glasgow, 2005), and the site-specific promenade-through-the-underworld Don't Look Back by DreamThinkSpeak (New Register House, Edinburgh, 2005).
