Directing

I have been directing for the past 15 years.
I trained at LIPA from 2000 -2003 and received 1st class hons in Performing arts.
In 2008 I completed a year long director traineeship at Sherman Cymru supported by Arts Council Wales. In 2009 I was awarded an emerging directorship with National Theatre Wales.

I have worked with several organisations including:
Bath Theatre Royal,  Bristol Old Vic, National Theatre Wales, Sherman Cymru, Theatre West, Theatr Iolo,  Trestle Theatre Company ,  circumstance  and The Egg Theatre Bath .

I am co- artistic director of Invisible Ink, an exciting collaboration between myself and writer Alan Harris.

My work has spanned many different genres including: Classic texts, Childrens’ theatre, Spoken word poetry, Puppetry and Live art.  My influences vary greatly from Tim Crouch to Katie Mitchell with Mike Leigh somewhere in the mix.

My practice is led by a continued curiosity and desire to understand people. I hope to use theatre as a medium to illuminate and elevate human stories for audiences to both be entertained by and identify with.

Script development

Alongside directing I have also developed/ dramaturged many new plays by emerging and established writers for companies such as : Sherman Cymru, Bristol Old vic , The Tobacco Factory theatre, Theatre West, Dirty Protest

Teaching/Lecturing

My other main area of work is teaching. I am a part time lecturer at Bath Spa university on the Drama studies programme. I am module co ordinator for Applied Theatre and Making Performance.
I train actors of all levels and abilities including: private coaching for drama school auditions, a 10 week actor training course, youth theatre sessions for several organizations and masterclasses for drama schools.
