    About me

    Seven years ago I made the transition from actor to theatre director and have been steadily growing the scale of projects that I work on, and defining my style of theatre further each year. I’m a strong collaborator with instinctive leadership skills, who spends much of pe-production getting to the heart of the play. My production of the ambitious House of America at the Brockley Jack theatre was nominated for the 2017 Off West Awards for best production.
