Design for performance, events and live arts.

'My curiosity lies in the live event, the temporary nature of performance and its subsequent effect on the audience. How live experiences create opportunities for congregation and togetherness which seem increasingly important given the isolating effect of developing digital technology. I find the momentary collective energy produced as part of that live experience both exciting and creatively rewarding to be a part of, and am excited to explore these avenues further through film and installation.'

I have a hands-on approach to design and can confidently apply myself to any part of the process. My training has developed my technical, practical and social skills, namely model making, an attention to detail and computer aided design. I take great pleasure in meeting and working alongside like-minded people, especially when collaborating with a wider creative team and technical crew.'
