Antenna 2014

I am a freelance theatre director and writer, with over 25 years experience in the industry. I originally trained at ARTTS International as an actor, where I co-wrote my group’s first public performance and our graduation show.

 

I formed Company O Theatre in England in 2006 to promote new writing, adaptations and installations. I am co-artistic director of Teatteri Vertigo in Finland, which specialises in large scale immersive, site specific and promenade theatre and with whom I've been with since 2008.

 

I am also a director and tutor at Drama Studio London and have been working with them since 2016.

I've been the recipient of Arts Council founding and other funding bodies for my own productions in the past.
