I am a tenacious, creative and determined young producer and I have been producing theatre ever since leaving drama school where I studied acting. Whilst training I was head of fundraising for our Edinburgh Festival Productions and managed to raise thousands of pounds to get two productions up to Edinburgh for a week. I was an active marketer of all in house productions and in my third year, for my dissertation, set up my own company and wrote, composed, directed and produced an early version of what would later be the musical R.I.P. It was always my intention when graduating not to wait for the acting work to come to me but instead to form my own company of creative people and make the work for ourselves, and that company is Grindstone (previously ‘A passion for D.I.Y’ 2010-2012). Through this company I have discovered my love for producing and my work as a producer has really taken an exciting turn in the last two years. Grindstone was founded in January 2013, for which I act as Producer, Writer, Creative Director and Composer. In our first year we produced my musical ‘RIP’, which premiered at the Covent Garden Actor’s Church. The musical, written, composed, directed and cast by myself was then picked up and transferred to The Kings Head Theatre for a run throughout July 2013. It sold out, garnered fantastic reviews and further offers of a transfer to The Soho Theatre. Most recently I produced Grindstone’s production of WW1 drama ‘The Glasshouse’ at The Tristan Bates Theatre, a new play by Max Saunders Singer. It was a huge success and I cant say I’ve ever been prouder of our work. Both The Tristan Bates and The Park Theatre have expressed their interest in programming us in the future. In 2014 I became a freelance Producer at Scripted Well, a theatre company which specialises in providing pieces of drama, film, theatre and role play for the medical and pharmaceutical industry. I produce this single handedly. Our debut project was for a leading global pharmaceutical company and took place in Amsterdam at an international press conference in October 2014. I am a professional actress and singer and believe this has equipped me with the tools and knowledge needed to make me an informed and creative producer who understands theatre on all levels. I have a great knowledge of the industry and have strong and growing relationships with many theatres, agents, casting directors, press and actors.
