    About me

    I'm a Writer, Director and Executive Producer based in London.

    I'm the Artistic Director of The Lion & Unicorn Theatre.

    I'm also Artistic Director of Proforca Theatre Company with a number of fringe theatre credits in London since 2016. These credits include Drama, musicals, and adaptations of classic works. Our Major projects for 2018 are our original work "Feel" it's spin off "Feel More" and a remount of our 2017 production of "Reading Gaol" which is adapted from the Ballad by Oscar Wilde. I have directed work at London fringe venues such as The Lion and Unicorn, Theatre N16, the King's Head Theatre & the Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre pub. My work has also been performed at the Albany Theatre, Coventry and Hertford Theatre, Hertford.

    I am interested in all sorts of theatre, with a specialism in the production of new writing / fringe theatre and modern portrayals of the millenial London experience.
