I'm currently staff director at the National Theatre, on Young Chekhov and previously Jane Eyre. I am Associate Director on Peter Pan with Sally Cookson this coming Christmas.

I am a Associate Director for Propeller and Supported Artist at Pegasus Theatre. Between 2013-2014, I was Artist in Residence at Oxford Playhouse as part of the Evolve scheme. I graduated from Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in 2010.

My interest and experience ranges from Shakespeare, to theatre for families, site specific theatre, scripted work, musicals, devised collaborations, new writing as well as experience in directing young people. I make visually dynamic and sonically inventive story-lead theatre for audiences of all ages.
