I'm a writer and director based in the UK, mainly working across theatre and gaming. In addition to freelance employment, I co-founded the theatre company Idle Discourse in 2016, and have produced over a dozen projects with the company since then. I formerly worked as an actor (receiving an Offie nomination in 2012) and - before that - a teacher of English, Drama and Media (PGCE).
I work extensively with the social storytelling platform Dorian, a gaming app that prides itself on engaging with female and diverse creators. I'm an ambassador for the company, regularly write story prompts for authors, and manage a professional acting troupe who broadcast stories every week.
I sit on the Board of Trustees for Green Shoes Arts, a company based in East London that run creative activities for the local community, and am a former Trustee of The Questors (the largest community theatre in Europe). At The Questors, I also worked as Director of Studies for their Acting for All course, and ran bi-annual new writing festivals.
I have a working-class background, and grew up in Gosport where I (mis?)-spent my youth playing football and video games - when I wasn't acting, directing, and writing with a multitude of drama groups.
After school, I attended the University of Cambridge, studying Education with English and Drama, and was involved in twenty-five productions in my three years there - including tours of Europe and the USA.
A love of storytelling has been with me all my life, and it's what drives my career today. I enjoy nothing more than crafting a story with fellow creatives, and sharing these stories with people across the UK and internationally.
If you love stories too, we'll get on.
