I haven’t been to Uni and have no formal training in theatre. I was a very naughty kid and my brain and body weren’t meant to learn in an academic way. Over the last five years I have been fortunate enough to learn my craft with the support of lots of incredibly generous artists and space to fail lots.
I left school at 18, joined the Bristol Old Vic Young Company and was fortunate enough to be part of their Made in Bristol training scheme. I worked as an usher, on the bar and on box office at Bristol Old Vic to pay my rent. I started working with the Engagement Department as a workshop leader across schools in Bristol. Over the last five years I have been able to make work with lots of incredibly talented artists and theatres.
In 2017 I recieved the Henry Augustine Forse Award for my contribution to Engagement.
In 2018 I recieved a Bristol Old Vic Ferment Leverhulme Scholarship to develop my craft as a director.
In 2018 I founded my theatre company FULLROGUE.
I was selected to be a 2020 Incubator Artist with The Egg, Bath.
I am on the Board of Trustees for MAYK and I am the Company Director for YOUNG SIXSIX.
I am one of the Headlong Origins Directors for 2021.
