I’m a lighting designer and educator. In my lighting practice, I regularly collaborate with performance makers and other practitioners on creating new landscapes and environments made of light.
I run the MA Light in Performance at Rose Bruford College in London, UK. I am actively engaged in exploring new ways to teach and learn about light in performance, particularly through cross-disciplinary working and knowledge exchange.

My research interests are within inter-disciplinary training and knowledge exchange (at Rose Bruford). How light creates and/or interacts with a performative environment (with fevered sleep). How light can guide, or respond to, the movement of a body through space (with the clod ensemble).
Ongoing Library of Light. Funded project, documenting and archiving light works.
