    Additional Information

    In 2020 I completed an MA Acting at East 15 Drama School. At East 15 I have played the parts of Lopakhin (The Cherry Orchard), Shooter (Sam Shepard's Action), Ross (Macbeth), John of Gaunt (Richard 2), Stanley (The Birthday Party), Martin (Double Dare), the Vicar and Leader (The Dog Beneath the Skin) as well as various roles in a devised show.

    About me

    I am originally from Birmingham, UK and have a degree in Drama and English from Hull University. I worked at B’ham Arts Lab, Birmingham Hippodrome, B’ham Rep and Midlands Arts Centre in various roles – stage manager, drama leader, Marketing Manager, before working as an actor and theatre director (Pattern 23 Theatre, various children’s theatre companies, Artistic Director, Theatre Station Blyth, Northumberland and then Associate Director, Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham). As a freelancer I produced and directed The Tribute to Dennis Potter at The Everyman, Cheltenham, before founding and establishing ArtReach ( as an international Creative Producer and Cultural Consultancy. I co-wrote Peace in Our Town with Barrie Keeffe as a commission from Cheltenham Literature Festival. I was also founding Artistic Director of Norden Farm Centre for the Arts in Maidenhead. Over twenty years ArtReach has emerged as a major force in UK arts festival delivery, developing the brands of Journeys Festival International and Night of Festivals/LIBERTY UK which are delivered annually in five cities in England. ArtReach has also been responsible for producing the world’s largest interactive video artwork, UnderScan by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, which it presented across the East Midlands of England and in Trafalgar Square, London. I have directed four collaborative artistic projects across Europe and recently created the LIBERTY project with 12 partners across 10 countries. I have written for theatre, both as a solo writer and collaborator, and have produced a body of short stories, This is Exhibit B, as the writer D.R. Hill. The collection was shortlisted for the Eyelands International Book Awards in 2019. I am currently Chair of ArtReach and of the charity Play to the Crowd, which encompasses Theatre Royal Winchester and Hat Fair, and was previously (2008-2015) Vice Chair of Leicester Theatre Trust (Curve Theatre). I live in Maidenhead, Berkshire.

    Acting experience

    In 2020 I have secured parts in three films to date (two shorts and one independent feature).

I have written and performed in The Waiting Room and Oswald Mosley, Draining the Swamp.
