As a designer in theatre, I enjoy the element of play, and believe a performance should be just as interactive for the audience as it is for the performers. In my work I like to look at space, how it changes in a performance, how it effects a performance and try to incorporate it into the narrative as much as possible.

I am a hardcore puppetry and mask enthusiast. I have worked for theatre companies such as 'Pointed Arrow' and 'Hope Street Limited', as well as TV 'BBC Horizon' and most recently Music Videos. I like to experiment with different styles of puppetry, also fusing styles together. Most of my work is made from recycled materials as I think it gives a fantastic old haggard dimension to the work.

New Year, New Ideas.

I have had a lot of time off from my design work over Christmas due to many different reasons. One reason is that I have been very busy as a Youth Arts Worker and developing my workshops and ideas for this part of my career. It has been a very enjoyable few months but I feel it is about time I started designing and building something exciting again. So I am now starting on a new project, again designing and making a production idea using puppetry and perhaps masks. I am looking to begin this next week.
I have also added a 'Gallery' which includes a lot of my work up to now. I will be adding more this week.
