I am an emerging Writer/Director/Producer working with the tradition of poetry applied in drama and the opportunities presented by new media. I am interested in exploring how poetics can be physically and visually supported in bringing contemporary social themes to life.

I completed the MA in Creative Writing programme at UEA and previously trained in Acting at Mountview and Oxford School of Drama. I also spent brief time at Central School of Ballet London before developing abrupt scoliosis of the spine.

Arts Council England have supported my work as a Writer/Director since 2014 and I have enjoyed development from: Escalator Live Art, Menagerie Theatre, Arvon 42, Writers’ Centre Norwich/National Centre for Writing, Norwich Arts Centre, Metal Culture, Vivacity, Cambridge Junction and the European Commission’s Erasmus+ programme. In parallel lives, I’m a PR and Content Journalist. Sometimes I wrestle with scoliosis and Dyspraxia but mostly we do yoga together and dance.
