I design shows, experiences, and installations for heritage spaces, arts organisations, public space projects, and commercial clients. My clients come to me to bring their spaces alive as immersive and visually arresting environments, with an attention to detail in terms of scenography, costume design, and lighting.
When theming productions, I am able to take advantage of my artistic background and practice to enables me to create concepts to engage with a wide variety of audiences. This stems from my training in the performing arts; as a contemporary circus performer (Circomedia, UK), and in dance and physical theatre (LISPA, UK). I also worked extensively as a performer before progressing to show design.
I particularly enjoy working with light and projection-based installations. My special interest in creative technologies followed an artist residency at the Pervasive Media Studio (Bristol, UK). My inspiration comes from a wide variety of sources, but especially architecture and film. Cinematic works with a distinctive production design, such as those by Fellini, Greenaway, Tarkovsky, and Singh, are of particular interest to me.

I am a creative producer specialising in theatrical events and experiences which take place in arts and heritage spaces. 

 I have worked in circus and performing arts since 1999, and spent many years as a circus and cabaret artist, whilst progressing on to produce my own shows. 

My training includes attending Circomedia Circus School, studying physical theatre at LISPA (London Institute of Performing Arts) and various ongoing training in dance and other theatre forms.

Projection Mapping for e3 Media

Portfolio image:
For their 2018 Christmas Party, e3 Media wanted something which would make an entrance with impact. I worked with projection mapping team The Moth Factory to create vast projections across Kings Weston House in Bristol which could be seen for miles around. I am a big fan of minimal design and I feel simplicity often speaks the loudest so artistic direction I gave for the projections was to create something bold and striking using only monochrome red and white. The Moth factory team pulled this off with flair.

Dream Garden, an immersive experience and exhibition viewing, was produced in association with the Royal West Academy. The RWA is a breath-taking Grade 2* listed building, with opulent marble hallways, a vast terrace and stunning gallery spaces. The aesthetics of the building’s architecture was the main source of inspiration when designing performances. Acrobats, physical theatre artists, and ballerinas played the part of The Swan, The Monkey, The Rabbit and The Does.

UTOPIA was a pop-up restaurant and night time event with immersive entertainment at Arnolfini Gallery.

Empire Theatre

In 2013, I project managed the pop-up nightclub and performance space, Empire Theatre. The venue, a former Grade2 listed banking hall, became a thriving night time venue as part of the regeneration of the Old Market area of Bristol. I curated an engaging program, where circus and cabaret events ran side by side with the city’s cream of underground electronic music productions. The project was successful in gaining over 11,000 visitors to the space in a three month period.
