After training at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and working as an actor, I started my own theatre company and have since been working as an independent artistic director and producer.

My first production company was formed in Cyprus to produce professional Shakespeare in the ancient amphitheatres there, and we did Othello, Romeo and Juliet, As You Like It, The Merry Wives of Windsor and The Tempest.

I then formed Doublethink Theatre here in London to produce new work and fresh takes on forgotten classics, and we did The Revenger’s Tragedy by Thomas Middleton at Southwark Playhouse, The Lady’s Not for Burning by Christopher Fry at the Finborough Theatre, A Family Affair by Aleksandr Ostrovsky at the Arcola Theatre, The Spanish Tragedy by Thomas Kyd at the Arcola Theatre and Orwell: A Celebration at the Trafalgar Studios. This led to me winning the Society of London Theatre/Stage One New Producer Bursary, which in turn led to my producing and general managing (alongside Mark Rubinstein) the West End production of David Mamet’s Glengarry Glen Ross at the Apollo Shaftesbury Avenue, starring Jonathan Pryce and Aidan Gillen.

I was shortlisted for the Lloyds TSB Enterprising Young Brits scheme, took part in the BFI London Film Festival’s Think/Shoot/Distribute scheme, won the Channel Four/Stellar Network Pitch Up and was part of the Old Vic New Voices TS Eliot US/UK Exchange. Projects in development include a mixture of new work, classics and adaptations for both the commercial and subsidised theatre.
