I am a specialist theatre practitioner, based in Manchester, creating theatre for, and with, a variety of communities and individuals. I am committed to directing and devising theatre which rouses conversation and stimulates social change. I am an experienced performer, facilitator, director, and script-writer, with the ability to create bespoke workshops and experiences for diverse groups.


I have a first-class honours degree in Performing Arts from The University of Salford. I then went on to complete an MA in Applied Theatre from The University of Manchester. As a freelance theatre practitioner I have been fortunate enough to work with many fantastic companies in the North West and abroad including The Lowry, The Royal Exchange, Bolton Octagon Theatre, TiPP and many more. I have worked extensively with a variety of communities, ranging from prisoners, to hard-to-reach young people and adults, young offenders, victims of domestic violence, special needs, university students, actors, schools and more.
