I am a freelance theatre director. I primarily make new work for all ages and get excited by big, bold stories. My work is often political and usually musical.
The pandemic year has brought many challenges but also some brilliant moments of creative connection. I spent time working as a Dramaturg on two new musicals - Confessions by Kansley & Lidert and Random Acts of Kindness with composer Tim Gilvin (10 to 4 Productions and Mercury Musical Developments). I taught at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and UWE. I ran R&Ds for Tessa Bide Productions and on a show I'm developing about the life of Jane Goodall. Most recently I directed the film version of the musical I co-created, Islander, at Dundee Rep.
I am exploring other things too, like writing for children and film directing and I'm training to be a coach with One of Many. It's all about stories and people, really.
Thank you for visiting my site. If you'd like to talk about future collaborations or projects, I'd love to hear from you. Stay safe.
