Richard Neville

Richard is a well-rounded production, lighting and visual designer working across the fields of theatre, concert, worship, dance parties, corporate events and television.

As a lighting and media server programmer in addition to his design knowledge, Richard maintains an excellent set of programming, content creation and direction skills that do not limit him to merely designing productions.
