I'm a theatre director from Cornwall, now living in London

I studied English Literature at the University of Oxford and then trained as a director at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland

From 2014-2015, I was Resident Assistant Director at Theatre Royal Plymouth, where I worked on the theatre's new writing programme, including new plays by Carl Grose, DC Moore, Alexandra Wood, and April de Angelis

I am interested in stories which dissect the minutiae of human relationships within a specific historical or cultural context, and enjoy collaborating with actors and a creative team to find the right theatrical language to make a script sing for today
