Dance | Theatre | Producing | Programming | Event & Project Management

A dynamic, tenacious and ambitious theatre and dance producer passionate about access to high quality performance for all.

In my career so far I have been a member of senior management teams thinking strategically around partnerships; financial planning; income generation and business planning. I am a meticulous budget manager and contract writer, a thorough negotiator, an open minded collaborator and is passionate about enabling and supporting others towards achieving their goals.

Inspired by the under-dog and performances that reach out and grab me I work as an independent producer to support the creation of accessible performance and creative participation activities.
