In my free time, I like to immerse myself in the technical side of Cambridge’s thriving amateur theatre scene. My primary flare is for live sound mixing and sound design, something which I’ve been interested in since I was very young.

At high school I was involved with events ranging from concerts to conferences and from awards evenings to musicals. During the Christmas vacation of my first year at university, I was lucky enough to be selected as a technician for the Cambridge University European Theatre Group’s tour of Twelfth Night. My summer was then spent touring Japan with the Pembroke Players' tour of Romeo & Juliet. 2017 saw me take on the role of Production Manager for the Cambridge American Stage Tour’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

In the summer of 2018 I had the pleasure of sound designing my first opera, The Pirates of Penzance at the famous Minack Theatre in Porthcurno near Land’s End. The Cambridge University Gilbert and Sullivan Society put on an production here each year and I have had the pleasure of returning each time since.

Other events which I’ve been involved with in a technical capacity include The Big Questions on BBC 1, Any Questions? on BBC Radio 4, BBC News' coverage of The Boat Race in 2019 and the Leaders' Debate for the 2017 General Election which was broadcast live from the Senate House in Cambridge.
