About me
My work combines creative design, innovation and technology within the performing arts and live events. I aim to use my interdisciplinary skills to build a career in theatre and live events fusing art and technology.

Through this experience, I hope to provoke thinking about deafness and generate an increased awareness of how deafness has an impact in day to day life

This project is still currently in development with a performance in January.

  • Real Time Interactive Technology with Dance using Microsoft Kinect
    Real Time Interactive Technology with Dance using Microsoft KinectThis project studied and developed the use of interactive technology in dance with Rachel Johnson who was studying for the MA in Choreography at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.
