I am currently a freelance technical and production manager, while also raising mental health awareness in theatre and live events.
Before becoming a freelance production technical manager I was the Technical Manager for the Battersea Arts Centre.
In my role, I am currently the technical and production manager for all commercial and community events that take place at the BAC, which has had a huge range of events including BBC Proms Launch 2019, Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year 2020/2021 and ‘The Way Out’ a collaboration between the BAC and BBC Arts which aired on the BBC in May 2020.
Before taking on events I was the technical lead for the re-opening of the Grand Hall in summer 2018 which sadly burnt down in 2015. This included working with the team finishing off all the snagging and. After this I led on the Phoenix Season in the Grand Hall which had performances from National Theatre of Scotland, Briony Kimmings, Daniel Kitson and Geeko to name a few.
Before taking the role at the BAC, I worked as touring chief electrician, in which I had the pleasure on working on international tours for Imperial Ice Stars and UK tours of Our House, Avenue Q and many more.
I found out about the PMF after being invited to attend the forum ‘DDA – Beyond Compliance: It’s not just about wheelchairs’ March 2019 at the ENO, which I was also asked to be on the panel for the second half of the forum.
Ever since then I have been an active member in PMF attending socials, forums and the AGM. I became Resource Associate in January 2020 working alongside Mandy and the rest of the team.
