In moments of extreme angst has also been know to Direct - but only Opera and High Class Tat...has also choreographed back to High Class Tat again Noteable Production Lighting Designs include:- Hamlet for The Half Moon Theatre Company starring Frances de la Tour as Hamlet and Maggie Steed as Gertrude; Godspell at The Crucible; The UK Tour of Uncle Vanya starring Simon Dutton and Tamsin Olivier; ; Blues in the Night starring Sharon D Clarke at The Gateway Theatre; Dames at Sea staring Mari Gordon-Price at The Byre Theatre St Andrews, and the UK Amateur Premiere of Putting it together at The Palace Theatre, Westcliff

Has recently Devised and Directed ''SchwartzTastic!'' featuring the songs of Composer/Lyricist Stephen Schwartz over the last forty years, to great aclaim...

Has taught Stage Lighting Design in several Drama Schools and F.E. Colleges, and, despite rumours, does rather like Intelligent Lights - though he doesn't get to play with them often enough. He's old enough to have lit Floorshows in London, and did London HAD Floorshows

Loves Birdies, 181 and 201, and he really did smack Cilla Black in the mouth in Panto ''Oh yes he did'' But it was a very long time ago.
