With nearly 40 years varied experience in lighting, rigging and event production, I've been lucky enough to have been involved in a wide range of productions either at the design or production Lx level.

Starting out in theatre at HMT in Aberdeen, a move was made into touring, both theatre and music. LD duties for a diversity of acts ranging from the Supremes to Talking Heads. Relocating to London, a staff job as an LD & Production Manager at Theatre Projects Services allowed LD work on many different events such as Model of the Year, car launches for Ford, Fiat, Porche and GM, exhibitions in the V&A, The Royal College of Art and the Science Museum and conferences for IBM, the BMA and Wang Computers to name a few. A guest designer at the Aberdeen International Youth Festival. PLX work included Queen and Crystal Maze. Also a considerable number of Son et Lumiere type productions and architectural lighting.

Freelance work has been interspersed with spells as Technical or Production Manager in a number of venues such as the QE2 Conference Center ( TV & Conference ), Millenium Dome ( specialist rigging & aerial element design ), HMT in Aberdeen ( included a major technical refit ), Liverpool Empire Theatre and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow.

As an ex member of the British skydiving squad, I've lit a number of OBs involving freefalling cameramen, athletes and performers.

Lastly, my apologies for the lack of photographic evidence. Many of these productions were pre camera phone, so I'm in the process of scanning in some examples of my work, and will post a more professional biog. asap!
