DIRECTING

At the heart of my practice is a sense of team. I am always focussed on bringing the actors, stage management, production team and creatives together. I feel that every member of the team should have the opportunity to express themselves and feel fully invested in the production.

I am a director who comes with questions and together with the rest of the team we explore and develop ideas.

I am always keen to hear from and meet with writers, companies and producers who might be interested in working with me. So do get in touch.

I am available as a director, assistant director or dramaturg. I am also an experienced facilitator and workshop leader.

Below you can see some of my productions and my CV.
