Sam is a freelance production manager, lighting designer, and creative technician who's been based in Nottingham for the last 8 years. He works nationally with a number of productions, tours, and venues, such as The Royal Academy of Dance, The Barn Theatre, Hull Truck Theatre, Little Angel Theatre, Tavaziva Dance, Nonsuch Studios, and Lakeside Arts.
