I'm a theatre maker: actor, director and facilitator. Originally hailing from Prestonpans, East Lothian- all of my work is dedicated to bringing to life untold stories that need to be heard.

Co-founder of Wonder Fools and a graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, 2016.

Some of my recent work includes: writer and performer of Wonder Fools' 'The Coolidge Effect'; writer and director of Wonder Fools' ‘549’ - a verbatim account of four miners from Scotland who fought in the Spanish Civil War;  actor in a development of a new children’s musical ‘Terrible Tales of the Netherwold’ by Noisemaker; research assistant for Gary McNair’s ‘Locker Room Talk’ at the Traverse Theatre – a verbatim performance in response to the election of Trump; writer and director of Conflux’s 'Between Two Worlds’ - an outdoor site-specific physical theatre performance; assistant director to Graham McLaren for 'Dream On’ - a multi-arts experience to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death; workshop assistant to National Theatre of Scotland’s Simon Sharkey on ‘we’re here because we’re here’ - a performance conceived by Jeremy Deller and Rufus Norris, which saw 1500 volunteer performers take to the streets, as a contemporary memorial to mark the centenary of the Battle of the Somme. My next job will see me play the role of the narrator in Douglas Maxwell’s ‘Charlie Sonata' directed by Vanishing Point’s Matthew Lenton at the Royal Lyceum Theatre.
