"After graduating in 1992 Andy went on to work within the sound and lighting department at Canterbury's Marlowe Theatre, gaining experience as a front of house live sound engineer and lighting technician in a variety of contexts from orchestral performances through to large scale rock shows and musicals. Andy's PhD research centred on the use of innovative control systems for the creation of projected solid light scenography for performance and installation. His practice-based research sees him create real-time dynamic light projections that act as manipulable spaces within a performance or installation environment. These can be seen as performative structures in their own right, but are best positioned as a contribution to the visual language used in the creation of contemporary performance. Andy currently oversees the lighting and sound modules taught on the Performing Arts and Drama degree programmes at CCCU and supervises final year students through their practice as research projects. Andy is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy"
