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.

I regularly run workshops for companies, primarily working in schools and educational settings.
My facilitating experience covers both online and in-person workshops, with a particular focus on engaging young people with theatre and storytelling from Shakespeare to devising their own work.
Companies I've worked for include: Coram Shakespeare Schools Foundation, Royal Shakespeare Company, The Barbican, The British Library, Guildford Shakespeare Company, Proteus Theatre Company, and West End In Schools.
If you're interested in hiring me as a workshop leader, then please do get in touch.
