Hiya. I'm a freelance theatre director, currently exploring the world of immersive theatre. I'm a fan of theatre which plays with all of your senses, rattles your soul and gives you an experience you won't forget: whether it's interactive, emotionally provocative or includes live music. That's what I like. X

I also co-manage VOLTA theatre.
