I am a Glasgow based Director and creative making work in theatre and screen for a wide range of audiences.
I am currently creating Trivial Drinking, a new visual-led performance for audiences aged 2-5, commissioned by Lyth Arts Centre. I previously created Which Wires What, a visual, socio-political work for young audiences with The Weather Channel and Imaginate. Which Wires What recently commissioned as a Work in Progress as part of the Edinburgh International Children's Festival.
I have a strong interest in developing new writing. As Associate Director, I toured Scotland with Morna Young's CAT Award winning* production of Lost at Sea. (*winner of Best Director and Best Ensemble, nominated for Best Design). Supported by Federation of Scottish Theatre's Director's Bursary and Horsecross Arts, I worked with Morna Young to develop her play Remember the Future. In 2018, I received seed funding from Stellar Quines to develop a new text with Rebecca Sweeney to explore making visible and audible the symptoms of invisible illnesses through theatrical device. I have previously worked for companies such as the Dundee Rep Theatre, The Traverse Theatre, The Tron Theatre, Oran Mor and has also created content for BBC Scotland's Comedy Short Stuff.
As an assistant director, I have worked in both Scotland and England working alongside several different directors such as Jemima Levick, Graham McLaren, Ian Brown, Andy Arnold and Marilyn Imrie. I have been assistant director for two CAT Award nominated productions The Lonesome West (Best Ensemble - Tron Theatre, 2016) and Great Expectations (Best Director & Best Design - Dundee Rep Theatre, 2015).
