Hello!

I am a Director, a Development Producer and Acting Coach and since 2019

Co-Creative Director of Fly High Stories. I am in my 6th year as a Mentor Director for the National Theatre Connections Festival. Since 2019 I have been expanding my practice digitally and am a recipient of a DYCP from the Arts Council to bring my digital and live work together.  I have over 40 productions (stage, screen, audio) under my belt. I direct with passion and wit and I specialise in working with new writing and developing writers. 

 

My previous work has been commended for my keen eye for visual style and energy flow both through individual scenes and pieces as a whole. I am an expert dramaturg and craft narratives both through text and visuals.  At the helm of a team, I lead by putting kindness and common sense at the heart of everything I do.

I take huge pride in that I was a founding board member of Stage Directors UK and I am currently a trustee for the Director’s Charitable Foundation.  

 

I am driven by socio-political new writing and the need to make the world a better place for my child. What we need right now is joy and hope and anarchy. 

For more details on the work I have made have a look through my website or for my most recent digital work and work as a development producer head to www.flyhighstories.co.uk
