  I am a director, writer and facilitator,

championing people with extraordinary ways of seeing the world, whilst expanding my own creative practice.

Through opera, theatre and interdisciplinary performance, I connect and collaborate with the aim of creating unique experiences which live in the mind forever.

"plenty of interest and originality."
— Opera Magazine, Fairy Queen 
"A work of art."
— Fringe Opera, Clive and Other Stories 



I have created award winning performance projects for spaces including The Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House, The Lawrence Batley Theatre and The Eden Project. Working with artists and communities internationally, my productions have been featured on BBC Radio 3, ITV and Channel 4.

As a director, writer and facilitator, I love to be an invisible force for instigating, nurturing and synthesizing creativity: the magician in the room. Always, I combine the highest artistic standards with a deep sense of purpose. 

Since training at Goldsmiths, Cambridge University and Guildhall School,

I've worked on baroque and contemporary chamber works, large-scale opera with leading directors and musical & theatrical collaborations with a range of artists — from singers and dancers to young people, curators, scientists and babies.
