About me

Having gained a degree in Theatre Design and Drama I have always been a creative individual. Being exposed to the artistic world and having worked at the Royal Opera House previous to my current role, my skills are consistently expanding in their diversity. Through this experience, I have the confidence within my knowledge on many aspects of Art and Design and feel able to advise accurately on many technical and design aspects of this field.
