I'm a freelance theatre director, dramaturg and teacher. 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 writing. I'm especially interested in working with live music, sound and other digital disciplines.
I am 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.
