I have been involved in theatre and stage production since a very early age when I "helped" my father with his community and church lighting projects. In high school I was heavily involved in the then-new purpose built theatre, including helping design and operate the lighting for numerous school productions and external concerts.
Having been bitten by the bug, I soon became involved in the amateur theatre scene in Melbourne, and spent many years crewing and designing musicals. I was able to use this experience to find employment on a number of major commercial productions, including The Phantom of the Opera, The New Rocky Horror Show, and 42nd Street for the Australian tours.
After a few years break to raise a family, I am now rekindling my love of theatre and lighting.
