Biography

I am a freelance lighting designer and technician based in London. I have designed for theatre, opera, circus and children’s theatre. I am an associate member of the Association of Lighting Designers.

I studied Technical Theatre at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, graduating in 2011. Previously I did a BA (Hons) degree in Drama & Theatre Studies with French at University College Cork, graduating in 2009.

I have a special interest in physical theatre and circus and did the lighting design for the Circus Space 3rd year BA Hons and Postgraduate Devised Pieces show entitled Strange Forces in March 2013.

Recent work includes Man to Man at the Mercury Theatre studio, Colchester, and a co-lighting design with Jason Taylor, at the Crucible, on the world premiere of John Godber's new play Jack Steele and Family in a collaboration between Sheffield Hallam University and Sheffield Theatres.

In June 2012, I lit the opera Pagliacci at the Cork Everyman Palace as part of the Cork Midsummer Festival. Pagliacci won the Irish Times Irish Theatre Award for Best Opera Production 2012.

I also lit Love All at the Everyman Palace, Cork, and on tour to the Assembly Roxy at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2012.

Other lighting designs include KATIE MAG a new play at the Everyman Palace, Cork, Bringing Down the Moon, a children's show, which spent a month at the Pleasance, Islington, and then toured in Spring/Summer 2013 including the Brighton Fringe 2013, and Pilgrmage Project at Wilton's Music Hall which was created and directed by Matthew Lloyd.
