I have co-written and co-devised five shows with Zoo Co. These shows received critical acclaim, five-star reviews, sold-out performances and awards at Edinburgh Fringe as well as touring to over 25 venues across the UK and internationally.

I also wrote and devised my solo show, Mr Brightside, performed at Greenwich Theatre in 2018. 


My main experience and passion is in theatre, but I have dabbled and am interested in film. As well as acting, I have extensive experience in different performance styles such as clown, mime, movement, dance, physical theatre, fire-poi and have performed as an actor-musician playing drums, accordion and saxophone.

In rehearsals I have a lot of experience devising with the company as well as doing script work.

I have also worked consistently in creating genuinely accessible theatre, including with cast and crew members with various different access needs. I have trained (and performed) in British Sign Language up to Level 3 and hope to continue learning.
