BOLD

 I don't shy away from big gesture - be that colour, intensity, angle... If the production needs to say something, the lighting will very much be a part of that.

Socially engaged

 The theatre I choose to make is important and forward facing. The environment is my primary focus, as well as the multitude of other social issues facing our society today.

dynamic

 I believe every performance work deserves a lighting journey that helps it breathe toward an audience.
