    About me

    I have been involved in theatre as long as i can remember. when i was 9 i was in the "Bottom" film "Guest House Paradiso" and it was that which made me decide to make theatre my life. In 6th form i studied both dance and drama, during which i started choreographing which lead me into directing, lacking the dance ability to go into choreography. I got a place at Drama Centre at 18 though i left to take a year off feeling i was too young, i came back after a year and completed my studies. During Drama Centre i focused mainly on theatre, though i did direct two films while i was there, one being entered into BT's Big Voice competition. My passion has always been classical theatre, especially comedies i feel my true abilities lie there, however i am very comfortable in new writing.

    After leaving drama school I founded my own company Elephant who's debut show Richard III sold out at the platform theatre.
