As a freelance Director I am fortunate to collaborate with companies, practitioners, educators and individuals across the UK and beyond.


I use my training in negotiation skills and theatre to celebrate collaboration 'in the room' and throughout my practice.


I believe the graft and faith of collaboration creates a vital and unique experience for audience, practitioner and venue.
