    About me

    I have worked as an assistant director on over ten productions in the last two years and I have learnt how to adapt and be flexible to the different demands that each job, and each director, brings. I have worked as a researcher, casting assistant, stage manager, assistant stage manager, production manager and administrator at various points when assistant directing. I have been consistently valued by the directors that I have worked with, as an extra objective eye in the rehearsal room and always displaying enthusiasm, vigour and positivity throughout the rehearsal process.

    As a director I am still enjoying observing and learning other directors' processes and trying different techniques with actors that I work with. It is a very exciting stage for me right now: I am able to try out new ideas with young actors and new plays, as well as observing how older directors tackle well established plays with more experienced actors.
