About me

I'm a creative producer with 3 years experience in both commercial and subsidised theatre who has worked with Ellipsis Entertainment, Rogue Productions and Les Enfants Terribles. Specialising in interactive and immersive theatre I make it my mission to explore the landscape of how audiences find ways to play and interact through attending theatre and producing video games to identify trends and patterns I can bring into my own work. My work is often praised for being both analytical and creative as well as being at the forefront of professional practice. My diverse and unique skillset is something I believe could truly benefit your portfolio of work.
