Alex is a lighting designer, creative technologist and technical director based in London. Since 2010, he has been technical director for the critically-acclaimed theatre company DELIRIUM and has worked on four of their major productions: Your Nation Loves You (the first promenade play staged in The Old Vic Tunnels), Go To Your God Like a Soldier (in Edinburgh and London), Oranges on the Brain and From Where I’m Standing. It was for this last show that Alex developed CueSurface™, a system that allows iPads to be used as wirelessly-controlled synchronised video surfaces in theatre productions - believed to be a world-first. He is currently represented in London by One Minute, for which he has been nominated for an Offie Award for Best Lighting Designer.

Alex is passionate about new and interesting technologies and how they can be applied to theatre and live entertainment. In 2015, along with writer Sarah Henley and composer James Fox, Alex embarked on an Arts Council-funded project to develop a new musical ( The Unblinding), which includes the creation of a new system of wearable wireless LED lighting and associated technologies based on cheap, off the shelf hardware.

Outside of London, Alex works extensively in regional theatre especially in his home town of Cheltenham. It is at The Cheltenham Playhouse where he, at the age of 11, first ventured into the world of technical theatre by attending a week-long technical course - a course that he is now extremely proud to teach twice a year to 10-18 year olds, many of whom have since decided to follow careers in field.
