I am a freelance theatre director with a passion for new work. I am committed to making theatre that is rigorous, imaginative and emotionally truthful. I have been very involved with new writing throughout my career, both as a freelancer and as Joint Artistic Director of Flux Theatre, and enjoy collaborating with writers from early stages of development.
I initially studied Philosophy and Theology and am fascinated in worlds which challenge our preconceptions. I always look for the human in a story, the beating heart that draws us in and offers something new.
I am passionate about making work within the community and working with younger people, ensuring theatre is accessible to everyone. I am also interested in working with sound, film and other digital disciplines.
