I have been providing this pivotal role to productions and events for 25 years and have enjoyed working on a diverse array of different art forms in a variety of settings and scales. I pride myself on having been on time and on budget for all my previous projects.

Production Management brings together my natural desire to solve problems and my creative experience- this gives me both the necessary pragmatic approach as well as a full awareness of the creative challenge that the entire team are working towards.

Trained as an all-rounder, and having held fulltime positions in-house for 12 years, I’ve had first-hand experience of the many departments that support the creative industries. I have an excellent relationship with key suppliers and a contact book full of production staff, freelancers and highly skilled specialists.

I have worked on traditional, venue-based productions but I have also managed projects in all manner of unconventional settings and have a huge fondness for the challenges of found spaces and the site-specific. I’m as happy working indoors as out, having run many festival events and shows in both urban and rural settings. I have managed one-off events as well as UK and international touring and longer running projects.

With a portfolio of drama, dance, exhibition, festival and event projects, I am happy to manage any style or type of event, funded or commercial. I’ve worked on projects from the smallest fringe festival in London to a full-scale arena tour of the UK, and everything in between.

My approach is collaborative and inclusive, but I have no fear in decision making and am confident to lead large teams. I’m versed in all relevant aspects of Health & Safety and have a pragmatic approach that keeps everyone safe without stifling any of the creativity.

As well as providing Production Management services, I am an experienced Site Manager, Technical Manager and Technical Director.
