About me...

I am a freelance producer excited about discovering new talent and helping creative people to realise their ideas and ambitions regardless of genre and art form. I have experience in new writing, children's theatre, physical theatre, opera, dance, circus and large scale events and work to facilitate play in all its forms. I have worked consistently since 2013 with both emerging and established artists from conception to delivery. As a freelancer I have produced four shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, five national tours, two international transfers and many R&D periods. I have made work in and with over sixty different venues and festivals in both traditional and non traditional spaces.

 

I am currently Stage One Producer at the Citizens Theatre, Glasgow producing both main stage and studio shows and helping to coordinate coproductions and transfers.

 

I am Company Director of creative production company Scribbled Thought and was previously Creative Producer of Vertical Line Theatre (both supported artists of Greenwich Theatre). Scribbled Thought work with targeted individuals whose work we are excited by. We take charge of the logistics so creatives can concentrate on being creative. Projects have included development and national touring of children's play Superhero Snail Boy by Elizabeth Muncey (2013 - 2014), outdoor shows Full Stop (2015) and Playground Victories (2017) directed by Gemma Fairlie and Neil Bettles and dance theatre show Loaded (2015 - 2017) directed by Sinéad Rushe.

 

Companies I have worked with include Frantic Assembly, Tucked In and Artichoke alongside many individual artists. I am also Associate Producer of ThickSkin.  All of the work I have produced can be seen in my portfolio. You can also download my CV using the button below.

 

As well as producing theatre I have also worked in events and participation. This includes coordinating volunteers for Lumiere London and the Greenwich and Docklands International Festival. I previously worked as Participation and Outreach Coordinator at the National Centre of Circus Arts, coordinating the National Youth Circus Event 2013 and Got It! at the Royal Festival Hall as part of the U Dance Festival. I have also worked for the Gate Theatre and National Theatre of Scotland,
