Actor, Director, Producer, currently working as a Production Assistant at the Almeida Theatre.

A recent graduate of Warwick University,  I have had numerous positions within the University’s vast theatre scene.I have acted in many plays, produced, stage managed and directed my own production of Neil Labute’s Some Girls. I have also had experience working with theatre companies outside the university such as a new fledging company Unhinged Creations, which aims to address taboos concerning mental health and to widen the discourse surrounding mental health through theatre.

In summer 2014 last year we performed a newly written piece, Phantom Pain, which we acted in London and then on to Edinburgh. Though I acted in the piece it gave me valuable insight into production, theatre companies and what it takes to build and take a play to a number of venues. It also sparked my interest in producing and directing, which led me to put on and direct and produce a play at university.

 I also worked as a social media and marketing manager for a new and expanding arts event in the Midlands, Shoot Festival. My main duties revolved around managing the online marketing of the arts festival and any content posted online on the festival’s own sites, press releases and any other content that was passed onto local west midlands radio shows and newspapers. I was in turn responsible for writing press releases and creating imaginative and eye-catching posts on various social media, organizing and editing photography I received from each act’s rehearsal process, posting and releasing information about acts periodically in the build up to the festival. Recently, I assisted on a production of Angels in America with the University.
