I have been directing professionally since 1995 with theatre companies throught the UK and Ireland including Bristol Old Vic, Cork Opera House, Harrogate Theatre Royal, Orange Tree Richmond, Tivoli Dublin, Watford Palace Theatre Oldham Coliseum, and VIenna's English Theatre.
For the past 12 years I have also been writing plays including commissions from Watford Palace Theatre, Forest Forge Theatre Company.
I have had 2 plays selected and produced for the Manchester 24:7 theatre Festival, as well as writing and directing a short film.
'Boomtown Gals' my latest play was nominated for a Manchester Theatre Award.
I am currently writing and developing a new comedy called
'Bleeding Hell - a Period Drama' for Bonsall Productions.
A lot of my new writing work comes from working with a particular group or community, and researching and developing stories from there.
With several of these I have interviewed people and made a soundscape of their thoughts.
