I am a theatre maker of German, American and Cameroonian origin currently based in London. I create cross-cultural theatre projects that negotiate the boundaries between the familiar and the foreign, that emphasize collaboration and that have a lasting impact on artists and audiences. I direct and produce work for my own company, Two Gents Productions, and run Youth Theatre and other outreach programs for Shakespeare's Globe. I have developed my leadership skills through Step Change, the National Theatre’s professional development program and am now eager to push my experience into new territory by exploring new genres, collaborating with a wider range of artists, and expanding the scale, reach and ambition of my work.
