I am a female director working across screen and stage and fascinated by the synergy between the two.

I am currently in pre-production for a short film and seeking trainee director opportunities in HETV and Continuing Drama, building on my 8-year career in theatre and multimedia stage productions.

I am interested in new work that asks urgent questions about our contemporary world, and that pushes at the boundaries of what is possible onscreen and onstage in order to challenge, inspire and provoke viewers in new and meaningful ways.

Between 2017 and 2019 I undertook an Arts Council England-funded residency with Katie Mitchell, observing her creative practice on her trademark multi-camera live video shows in Germany; I also directed the children in Christopher McGill's short film THE SNATCHER, maintained the UK tour of Stephen Daldry's iconic AN INSPECTOR CALLS, and received Arts Council England funding to R&D a new multimedia production.

Please visit my website at for more information, including production photography and reviews, about my previous work.

ScreenSkills tests passed.
