I am a theatre performer, director, and coach based in London.
I am inspired by the innate paradoxes of what it is to be … human. For better and for worse. The characters I portray, stories I make and ways I teach are defined by capturing - and disrupting - the masks we present to the world.
Current projects include “MUMMY” (as performer/writer) and “All About My Monster” (as director/dramaturg); and various Cabaret Acts, including Carpe Diem Coach Cornelia Dacre and Property Visionaire Frankie Foxstone.
I am a facilitator for Theatre for a Change and in July 2016 delivered their first New Partnerships Training programme in Bukavu, in the DRC, hosted by Oxfam.
I offer tailored workshops in Improvisation, Comedy and Devising, most recently working with a group of teenage dancers in Gisenyi, Rwanda, and theatre artists in Kigali, Rwanda.
I regularly teach at the Actors Centre and for the Mono Box in London. I am a LAMDA coach at St. Paul’s Girls’ School and a mentor/tutor at Lionheart School for students with additional needs.
Following two years training at the Ecole Internationale du Philippe Gaulier and a degree in English Literature at Cambridge University, I have trained and worked with artists and companies from all over the world, including:
Lucy Hopkins, Aitor Basauri, Trygve Wakenshaw, Javier Ariza, Annie Castledine, Jenny Lee, Sophie Larsmon, Jesus Cristobal, William Oldroyd; Theatre for a Change, Cardboard Citizens, Told by an Idiot, Kneehigh, Spymonkey, SITI Company, Complicite, Song of the Goat.
I am co-founder and was co-artistic director of Spain-based bilingual theatre company Teatro Entre Escombros from 2010-‘13.
