I trained in theatre gaining a BA and MA in performing arts. My professional career began in small-scale theatre both as director, writer and performer.  Subsequently I undertook a variety of roles in the cultural sector as a project manager and as a writer and youth theatre director for regional producing and receiving theatres.

More recently, I have worked for a local authority leading on the delivery of major cultural events, whilst recapturing my fascination with the voice, storytelling and characterisation.  I live in Oxfordshire with my partner and 8-year old, who is a constant source of fun and already showing signs of catching the storytelling bug!
