I studied at The University of Birmingham and Central School of Speech and Drama. In 1998 I received an Arts Council Bursary to train as a director with Shared Experience Theatre and Salisbury Playhouse. I also assisted at the RSC, Lyric Hammersmith, The Young Vic and The Salisbury Festival.

Directing credits include: The Rhythm Method - The Stable, The Goose Who Flew - Half Moon & Lots of Odds, The Girl and the Giraffe - Half Moon & Floodsofink Tour, How To Beat a Giant-Unicorn, The Real Boy-London Schools Tour, Beauty Sleeps-Young Vic, Three's Company-Salisbury Playhouse, The Wizard of Oz- New End.

I also work regularly at Drama Studio and ALRA where I have directed numerous ensemble pieces including This Changes Everything by Joel Horwood, Second Person Narrative by Jemma Kennedy and Shakespeare's Sister by Emma Whipday, and adaptations Coram Boy, Sense & Sensibility, Cloudstreet, Ash Girl and Anna Karenina.

"Not only is Giraffe represented as being ill...we see the impact his behaviour has on others...the big draw of the show in theatrical terms is the puppetry: a lolling, sorrow-filled giraffe and Granny Owl fashioned from a scarf.Cheering and humorous, 'The Girl & The Giraffe' proves that what we need when helping each other is exactly what our long-necked friend already has - a big heart."
