I am Artistic Director of TilThisNight, formerly PurpleCoat, ‘one of the UK’s fastest rising ensembles’. Our body of work tours the UK and Ireland and is funded by ArtsCouncil England. My work has received support and funding from figures including Stephen Fry and Richard Wilson, and was developed in 2008 without any initial startup funding.

Our Young Actors Company have worked alongside the National Theatre and RSC. In 2013 our short film, The Big Day, was part of the Official Shortlist for the Virgin Media Shorts Awards.

MA Student at the Shakespeare Institute, where I have given talks as part of the Globe Shakespeare Conference and the Applied Shakespeare Synposium.
