I am a Movement Director/Choreographer/Dance and Pilates Teacher based in London.

After graduating Laban in 2004, I worked freelance as a teacher and community dance artist in the West Midlands, working with various sectors of the community, young children, youth dance companies, adults and senior citizens.

Throughout this period (2004-2011) I choreographed various solos and duets, all focused on the concept of what is authentic movement and how can the biographical history of an individual create a movement landscape. Previous work has been performed at The Place - Resolution, DanceXchange - New Vibes, The Theatre in the Mill Bradford, Midlands Arts Centre - Artist Residency.

In 2015 I graduated from Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, gaining a Masters in Movement Directing and Teaching.
