I am a freelance theatre producer with experience in various corners of the theatre industry, including PR, events and fundraising.

Recent projects include The Boatswain's Mate, an opera by composer and Suffragette Ethel Smyth as part of Grimeborn 2018 at the Arcola Theatre. With the same company, Spectra Ensemble, I have also produced ballet-opera Liturgie, performed at The Place as part of Tête à Tête: The Opera Festival 2017, and cabaret-opera Collision, which enjoyed a sell-out run at Grimeborn 2017.

For And Many Others, I am currently developing a new family show in association with Greenwich Theatre. I am also working on a play about teenage sexual culture in association with The Space.

Until May 2018, I worked in the Development department of the National Theatre, managing events to support the organisation's fundraising objectives.

I have had training as a producer from Stage One and RADA, in addition to gaining experience as a production assistant at The Corner Shop Events.
