1986 to 2002 - extensive technical work for stage shows, musicals, operas and drama.

I worked for years as a First Assistant to many top designers including the late Maria Bjornson and was her Design Associate for "Phantom of the Opera" Madrid, Stuttgart and Copenhagen.
I also worked extensively for William Dudley (for whom I was First Assistant on the original "Tanz der Vampire") Sue Blaine, Stewart Laing, Paul Brown, Hayden Griffin, Nicolas Dvigoubski, Tim Goodchild, Antony Ward,
The Royal Opera House, The National Theatre etc. and occasionally designed shows myself.
I was also occasionally a production manager at the Lyttelton and Cotesloe Theatres, including the millennium production of Bill Brydon's Mysteries Trilogy.
