I graduated in 1997 from drama school and worked as an actor for several years before pursuing an interest in training and directing young actors. I have worked with several companies and organisations over the past eighteen years, as a youth theatre director and practitioner, including Proteus Theatre, Winchester Theatre Royal and Haymarket Theatre, Basingstoke where I was resident Youth Theatre Director.
Recently, I took the decision to move back into mainstream production, this time as a director, with a particular focus on new musicals.
As part of my own professional development I successfully captained a young company through a production as part of the National Theatre Connections Festival 2018, as well as directing my first panto earlier in the same year.
I have since developed a children's show which I hope to tour in 2021 and I am currently developing an original musical, with a writer and local collaborators.
I am keen to reconnect with the profession and am looking opportunities to refine my skills, gain further experience and work with established professionals.
I am a member of Nuffield Lab and the JMK Directors Network.
I hope to gain invaluable experience being part of the Genesis Network and am excited to meet, share and potentially collaborate with other theatre makers, in London and across the SE region.
