John is a painter, writer and director.

John first worked professionally in theatre as an Assistant Stage Manager when he was seventeen. Since then he has had various roles in theatre from writing and directing plays to carrying and building sets.

John was a casual technician and crew member at Watford Palace Theatre for three years. He has first-hand experience of the practicalities and labour of shows, events and administration.

He is thrilled that the board has invited a younger voice to share an outlook from his generation, as well as provide points of view from the technical side of theatre.
