I'm a freelance theatre director with an interest in new writing. I've worked on large scale productions on the West End and venues across the UK. Previously, I was joint Artistic Director of new writing company Flux Theatre for 6 years. I enjoy collaborating with writers from early stages in the development of new work and am especially interested in working with live music, sound and other digital disciplines.
I'm an Associate Director at The Watermill and Theatre Directing Associate at Mountview. I've led youth and outreach programmes at The Watermill, Chichester Festival Theatre and Corn Exchange, and worked as a guest director at drama schools including Mountview, Royal Academy of Music and Oxford School of Drama.
Current: Associate Director on 'Operation Mincemeat' (West End) & 'Dawn French is a Huge Twat' (UK Tour). I'll be directing 'The Wizard of Oz' at The Watermill this Christmas.
