The beginning of an interest in theatre for Ceilidh was in a small community theatre in her hometown. Trying on as many hats as she could find, she settled nicely into the role of lighting operator, where she worked consistently for five years. After high school she made the move to Sydney to study at NIDA and pursue her passion for lighting.
During her time at NIDA she has met a huge array of amazing artists and industry contacts, especially through the secondments in her final year. Her enjoyment working in the lighting department of the Sydney Opera House has led to a casual job there, where she continues to develop the skills and knowledge she has learnt whilst studying.
