I am a theatre lighting technician, EOS programmer, and lighting designer based in Wrexham, North Wales. I am currently in the final year of study of BA(Hons) in Lighting Design at Rose Bruford College in Sidcup, where I've had the privilege working on a range of shows as designer and programmer, including dance performances, actor-musician productions, and devised productions. I am willing to travel and have a car available.
My journey into the world of lighting began in 2013 with BTEC Level 2 Technical Theatre studies at Coleg Cambria, Wrexham. This was followed by a BTEC Level 3 in 2016 and a year-long joint technical apprenticeship with the Wales Millennium Centre, Theatr Clwyd and Cardiff & Vale College in October 2017. Building on the experience gained, I worked as a casual with a lighting bias at Theatr Clwyd from 2018 to 2020 before deciding to pursue further education at Rose Bruford College in 2021.
Outside of theatre and lighting I have a keen interest in railways, maritime and aviation. My free time is usually taken up by relaxing to a variety of music genres and my instrument of choice is drum kit, playing on my Xbox, trainspotting and photography.

Myself, back in 2015 working on bringing Double Fairlie 'Earl of Merioneth' back into service after winter maintenance when I volunteered regularly on the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railway in Porthmadog, Wales. This is where my handle 'FfestiniogMatt' comes from.
