Chris is a freelance technical producer within the live event industry.
He graduated from The Central School of Speech & Drama with a Masters Degree in Theatre Practice in 2006, specialising in theatrical lighting design.
He then spent time working as a lighting designer at Essential Lighting Group, working primarily within the corporate communication sector. The highlight of his time there was designing and executing the lighting for The G20 Summit held in London in 2009, collaborating with designers Gary Collins and Neil Harvey to deliver this exceptional project.
Chris then worked for six years at production company HEART Productions, who specialise in turnkey design, production and management of product launches, public relation and experiential events. Here he developed his skills as a technical director, shaping a project's manifestation during the creative phase, and seeing it right the way through to a successful delivery onsite.
In 2014 whilst at HEART Productions, Chris executed the delivery of the ‘Be Active Showcase Pavilion’ for Coca Cola at the Sochi Winter Olympics as the project lead.
In 2016 Chris worked with Brilliant Stages as a project manager leading the manufacture of the Queen + Adam Lambert touring stage design for Stufish Entertainment Architects, and completed a role coordinating the engineering and manufacture of the main stage for Tomorrowland 'The Elixir of Life'.
In 2018 Chris was appointed by Litestructures Projects as the project lead for the London Design Biennale at Somerset House. This required the development of a multi disciplinary technical production service to meet the broad requirements of the international teams of curators, designers and artists exhibiting at the event.
He currently operates on a freelance basis across these markets trading as Experience.Communication.Performance Ltd, offering live event production services including technical direction, design development, budget forecasting & accounting, production management, stakeholder coordination and quality control.
