Technical Theatre Experience

Theatre has always been my passion. I am fortunate enough to have been working in this
field for over 14 years, giving me experience in nearly every aspect of theatre production.
A recent promotion to Technical Supervisor at the Carolina Theater of Durham has enabled
me to utilise my people management, organisational and motivational skills that have always
been prominent throughout my career. In addition to my formal qualifications, I have a broad
knowledge of theatrical lighting, with an emphasis on ETC lighting programming and operation,
as well as basic experience of moving-light programming on a HOG1000. I am a seasoned
scenic carpenter, and have worked on numerous shows in this capacity, including for a well
respected scenery workshop in the South of England. Since moving to North Carolina, I have
continued to extend my knowledge in technical theatre, including rigging, flies, and basic
sound engineering and operation. A full list of the shows I have been involved with, and in
which capacity, are available by clicking here.
