Bold

From a Winter Experience at the top of The Shard, to a breathable cloud of gin in a basement in Borough Market, I have designed the lighting for a range of experiential events.

Immersive

Lighting should make an impact, but it should be seamlessly integrated with other sensorial elements. I work closely with sound, video and architectural designers to create immersive environments.

Journeys

My lighting takes audience members on a journey. Guiding them through a theatrical experience, removing them from reality but never removing them from the moment.
