I’m a performer, director and theatre-maker. I work across a range of forms including clown, comedy, physical theatre, political theatre and experimental theatre, sometimes in some kind of combination.

I trained at Ecole Philippe Gaulier in Paris.

My work has won Best Ensemble in the Stage Awards for Acting Excellence, The Bush Theatre Directing Award, The Buzz Goodbody Student Director Award and I have been shortlisted and highly commended for the Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award.

I am also an Associate Artist with [Daedelus Theatre Company]
