I'm an actor, deviser/performer and theatre maker creating work in London and the East Midlands. I was one of Camden People's Theatre's 2019 Starting Blocks Artists and am one of The Barbican's Open lab 2020 Artists.
I specialise in making research-driven, multi-disciplinary theatre blending social experiment, live performance and multimedia. recurring themes underlying my work are new technologies, social media and sex.
At the beginning of 2020 I finished a big project working with Zest Theatre as a deviser/performer in YOUTHQUAKE. The show toured UK theatres September 2019 - Feb 2020. you can read reflections from the creative team and the young people we worked with across the country here.
