Hello! I’m Robbie. I'm originally from Ireland but now live in London and work mainly throughout the UK and Europe.
I started out touring with Cirque Du Soleil’s Amaluna as a fly-in lighting technician. From there I moved to London and worked in the lighting department at the Old Vic on shows such as Dr. Seuss's The Lorax, No's Knife, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, Groundhog Day The Musical and Girl From the North Country.
I now work full time as a lighting designer and my recent credits include productions at the Marlowe Theatre, Southwark Playhouse, The Park Theatre, Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Opera Holland Park.
Further credits include collaborations with the Wardrobe Ensemble, Tarento Productions, The Orwell Foundation, Abandoman, The Octagon Theatre Bolton and the Royal Danish Opera.
I am always interested in participating in exciting and engaging new productions in circus, theatre, music, opera and dance!

I was the winner of the ETC Award from the ALD, and I have twice been nominated for an Off West End Award for best lighting design.
I am an honorary life member of the Association of Lighting Designers and I sit on the Equity Directors and Designers Committee.
In 2018, I was part of a drive called the #SaveStageLighting campaign, which sought to safeguard the accessibility to the lighting instruments and equipment that are most commonly used in theatres across Europe.
