I am a venue consultant specialising in the planning and design of cultural venues and their technical systems. I advise on the spatial and operational planning of performing arts venues, user-centred experience design and specification of specialist technical systems. I joined Arup’s venues team in 2013.
I have worked for a wide range of cultural organisations in various operational and design roles. My professional experience includes production management for the Barbican Arts Centre and English National Opera. I have also worked as Operations Director for new media company Magic Lantern Productions.
I'm a trained engineer and building surveyor with a professional background in performing arts (production manager, stage designer) and new media.
