Profile

More

I am a theatre director based in London.  I have experience as an assistant director with companies across Scotland, and relocated to London last year.

I was recently assistant director to Michael Boyd on Tony Kushner's iHo at the Hampstead Theatre. I produce and direct the View From Here festival at Theatre503, showcasing new writing from across the regions of the UK.

I was JMK Leverhulme Arts Scholar and Regional Theatres Assistant Director bursary recipient with the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh in 2015 assisting on 'Swallow' by Stef Smith.

I primarily direct new writing and contemporary texts, and am particularly interested in making work with strong environmental themes. I am also an experienced workshop leader with young people and adults, and direct projects annually for my own company, Makeshift Broadcast. We also create a quarterly arts podcast which is available on mixcloud, recorded in front of a live audience.
