I am a third year student at the RCS studying Technical and Production Arts (Production Technology and Managment), specializing in Technical Stage Management. I fell into working on shows whilst at school and discovered a passion for technical theatre, going on to work on local amateur shows. I studied at Reid Kerr College on the HNC Technical Theatre course where I had the opportunity to experience a wide range of theatre skills, I hope to further and develop these skills whilst at the Academy.
Outside of theatre I enjoy climbing, cycling, sailing, fencing and swimming.
