Music Production Manager

I have worked as a freelance concert stage manager and event manager with venues and orchestras in Australia and the UK, including the Sydney Opera House, City Recital Hall, BBC live events team (BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall), the Royal Opera House, BBC Symphony Orchestra, the Barbican, Milton Court Recital Hall, London Philharmonic Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra and English National Opera. Until 2022 I worked in the music department of the National Theatre in London, before returning to Australia to freelance.

Showcaller and Score reader

I am an experienced and in-demand showcaller for concerts and theatrical performances, calling highly specialised musical events for a wide range of clients including the Australian Chamber Orchestra and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, and the BBC Proms. This has included multi-venue festivals (with simultaneously occuring performances called to score from an ‘air-traffic-control’ control room) as well as more traditional concerts with cuing of performers and of technical cues and effects.

A am also a specialist in Score Reading for live broadcast: marking-up and calling musical cues for the camera crews and Director/Switcher on live performances for the ABC and for the Sydney Opera House. Highlights of 2023 included a 7-day ‘Inside Out’ festival at the Opera House in which we projected full length concerts every day live onto screens on the forecourt; the MSO Classic 100 Gala broadcast on the ABC, and the Brian Cox Symphonic Horizons gala for SOH and broadcast on the ABC.

I am an experienced surtitle operator working for clients including the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Opera House, and the Barbican on scores ranging from classical-era core repertoire to contemporary and experimental operatic works.

Music Preparation & Keyboard Programming

I am a copyist and engraver for a number of composers, orchestrators, venues and publishing houses, able to do high-quality work from pencil sketches, fragmentary scores, midi and audio files. As a facilitator for the creativity of other composers and songwriters I am also an experienced keyboard and drums programmer in Mainstage and with hardware setups, and instrument technician, having worked on musicals, plays, operas, and contemporary classical music. I have edited audio and music (many examples of which can be found on my soundcloud, the most significant being my recent album).

Education And Outreach

I offer training and professional development to actors, creatives, and musicians, with a decade of experience in industry and a positive and enthusiastic attitude to sharing musical knowledge.
