Technical Projects

Speen Festival

I have been the Technical Director of the biennial Speen Festival in 2011 and 2013. This has included catering for the needs of the main production both during rehearsals and live performances, as well as the other festival events such as the Cabaret Supper, Jazz Evening and Prom in the Park. The pictures above are of the 2013 production of "Grease", where lighting, sound, power, staging and rigging were contructed and operated.

RGS Stage Lighting and Sound Team

I attended the Royal Grammar School in High Wycombe, and was a member of the Stage Lighting and Sound Team (SLST) between 2006-2011. In 2009 I was appointed as one of the team prefects, specialising in lighting. The team caters for all school events that require technical setup and operation, ranging from the daily assembly to the main school production. The pictures above are of a selection of my lighting designs.
