I am a freelance Lighting Designer and Production Manager, with my home base in Wynberg Cape Town, although I have worked all over Africa and as far afield as Europe and the East.
During my career, spanning over thirty years, I have worked for most of the major event companies and theatre producers on all types and sizes of productions, from one man shows to major corporate events – my speciality to bring a theatrical flair to any production
I do not limit myself only to Lighting Design, but am also an experienced Production Manager with excellent managerial abilities and people skills.
I have been involved in training for the entertainment industry for many years, going back to 1991 when I drew up the Lighting syllabus for the Community College of South Africa in Johannesburg. I also assisted Gearhouse South Africa with the development of the curriculum for their internship course (the Lighting lectures are still in use).
I was intimately involved in the training of students for the professional theatre industry while employed by the Tshwane University of Technology as Theatre Manager: Breytenbach Theatre, where my duties, amongst others, included:
· Advising and overseeing the Entertainment Technology students in all aspects of their practical work for Lighting, Sound, Props, Stage Management, Décor and Costumes
· Lecturing Stagecraft to the Drama, Dance and Musical Theatre and Vocal Art students
· Implementing and overseeing all aspects of safety in the theatre

In respect of my tertiary qualifications, I have a National Diploma (Theatre Crafts) and have successfully applied for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) through the Thswane University of Technology and was awarded B-Tech equivalent status in 2011.
