As a designer for live performance I have designed Sets, Costumes and Puppets nationally for immersive, touring and community productions alongside designs for carnival, festival, devised scripts, new writing, dance,
and short film.

I enjoy working in community, interactive and outreach projects; in 2019 I designed Capulets and Candyfloss with the Royal Shakespeare Company in collaboration with TRCH Nottingham. Our community cast retold Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet through our cast’s memories of love, loss, and life. The set and costume designs were developed in direct response to their stories, collectively deciding to set our show under the longest featured ride at Nottingham’s famous annual Goose Fair.

I trained at Nottingham Trent University, graduating with a First Class Degree in Theatre Design, where I was also the recipient of the Birmingham Opera Prize. As a result, in 2018 I worked with Birmingham Opera Company on the world premiere of Giorgio Battistelli’s new opera Wake as the assistant designer to Richard Hudson.

Further assistant work has included model making and draughting on a number of productions for designers Stuart Nunn, Nicky Shaw, Samuel Wyer, Anna Bonomelli, Hannah Sibai, and Hannah Wolfe.
I have assistant designed on projects nationally and internationally for opera, musicals, exhibitions, installations and UK tours.
