I am a freelance designer of sets, costumes and projections for performance. I’m also the artistic director of Daedalus Theatre Company. This site is my blog but it’s also an online portfolio for my work as as a theatre designer, visual artist and video designer, as well my work with Scale, Daedalus and other collaborators.
I’m on the committee of the Society of British Theatre Designers. I’m also part of the Scene Change and Freelancers Make Theatre Work networks and a member of Equity. I helped found The King’s Hall Trust for the Arts, and am currently its chair. I occasionally teach theatre design and sustainable theatre practice as a visiting lecturer, and have previously taught at universities including Goldsmiths and the Central School of Speech and Drama in London, and the National College of Arts in Pakistan.
I’m committed to making my design practice sustainable and am the co-ordinator of the SBTD’s Sustainable Design Group, which I also co-founded. I am part of the core team running Ecostage, as well as being a signatory the Ecostage Pledge and and a member of the Staging Change network.
Outside of theatre, I have a sideline as a writer and English language consultant for Angkriz Academy, play the fiddle in South London’s premier gay socialist folk band (as far as we know) and other music projects, and am an activist with Tower Hamlets Green Party.
