Profile

More

I'm a theatre and film director working in London and the South of England, with a focus on new writing and transmedia storytelling. I run Creative Garage (creativegarage.info) - a development and performance space in Hampshire - and am Associate Artistic Director (UK) of transmedia collective LoNyLa. I was the 2014 JMK Assistant Director at the Salisbury Playhouse and in 2015 was Experiment Associate Producer at the Nuffield Theatre in Southampton.

I develop collaborative projects as Explosionist (exposionist.com) exploring the intersection between performance and emerging technology. Recent work has included BOAT, an audio experience created to be experienced in a boat, and DREAM SEQUENCE, a storytelling project fusing video installation and performance art for a solo performer and a raft of video monitors.

My work as a filmmaker includes WRESTLING YETIS, which was described by Alice Jones in the Independent as "funny, heart-warming... a sweet comedy short" and has been screened at venues including the BFI, the House of Commons, the Olympic Park and the Roundhouse. Other films have screened at venues including Channel 4 HQ, Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles and on BBC Big Screens around the country in 2012.

My other hats include having a hardcore interest in water efficiency (including speaking at events/summits around the world) and being a "Global Theme Park Expert", according to the Discovery Channel and Sky News (among others). Still can't decide which gets me more nerd points.
