I've got a substantial sound bias, with multiple music qualifications, audio production certifications and years of experience in live mixing and digital audiomanipulation. Whether you need someone to design entire soundscapes for your production, efficiently set up reinforcement kit, or simply tap 'Go' occasionally, let me make some noise for you.
Need some images, videos and/or webpages designed, edited and/or created? Hand-tailored to your needs and specs, from the smallest social media icon to the largest billboards, I'm here for you through every milestone of the digital media lifecycle from inception to publishing and maintenance. (I'm also awaiting a date for the Photoshop ACA exam, at which point I'll be your very own Adobe-certified designer!)
Everyone in technical theatre is after that all-rounder; someone willing, friendly and knowledgeable enough to resolve any issue efficiently. I pride myself on the above, as well as my excellent and memorable service.
But enough buzzword-laden blurb; have a scroll down, and let me know what I can do for you.
A lifelong passion for live performance, complimented by two degrees in Theatre Studies, are helping me realise my ambition to work in a technical capacity in theatres, with a bias on design, operation and reinforcement of sound. Entirely self-taught, these skills developed in part through work with vintage function band:
A consummate all-rounder with a strong foundation in digital media and IT management (ITIL certified), my friendliness and willing are surpassed only by my desire to deliver the best service possible.
I also own the much-coveted full UK driving licence and my own vehicle.

Bruce is always my first port of call for design work. A consummate professional, Bruce is always a pleasure to work with and never fails to refine, and realise, in beautiful digital clarity, the ideas we have floating around in our heads. [...] Bruce has produced a myriad of posters, flyers, and programmes for our theatre productions and fundraising events. Each and every design was of the highest professional quality, and produced exactly when we needed them, often working to tight deadlines and always with a smile! Bruce is a champion of design for creatives, and that's the truth.
Ellie Pitkin - Artistic Director, Blackshaw Theatre
I've worked with Bruce on a number of projects and his creative variety and quality output never cease to impress. What I really think sets him apart, however, is the level of commitment that he gives to each and every project. With Bruce, your commission feels valued, and stellar results for your product are as important to him as they are to you.
Tom Shore - Photographer, TomShorePhoto
Bruce offers an excellent design service that is second to none. His consultation is professional without being patronising, always seeking to give you what you want and a signature design to suit your needs. He is both creative and friendly, which always helps! Highly recommended.
Jon Woodhouse - Artistic Director, Encompass Productions
Bruce's work has always been to a shockingly professional and eye-gravitating standard. Work he produces in half an hour shines with more brilliance than most designers manage in their whole careers. It makes me sick that such a young fella should be so bloody talented.
Thomas - Shoot From The Hip!
Bruce's unrelenting talent makes your weirdest job possible. There is no request too big, ridiculous or obscure he doesn't attack with gusto and creativity. He is a photoshop wizard.
Lizzie - Stage Manager
Bruce helped me with my business start-up by designing my logo and completely putting together my website. I got really good feedback about how my business looked and couldn't have made such a visual impact without Bruce's handywork. Thanks Bruce!
