I’m a Scottish theatre maker, interested in devising, directing and facilitating new work.

I have varied experience, mainly across text-based work. I’m also an experienced facilitator, interested in working with young people. I’m a strong collaborator and strive to tell stories in a visual, physical manner.

I’ve recently launched In Motion Theatre Company, in collaboration with producer/writer Lisa Nicoll and actor/writer Daniel Cameron. We’re currently in development with our first project, CARAVAN.

Another aspect of my work is in company management, recently working with DV8 Physical Theatre, Zest Theatre and BalletBoyz.
