I am a puppeteer and theatre maker currently based in London. I studied Drama at Queen Mary University of London and trained as a puppeteer at the Curious School of Puppetry in 2016. In 2018, I undertook a clowning course at L'Ecole International de Philippe Gaulier.
Alongside making my own work, I have worked with companies including Shakespeare's Globe, Bristol Old Vic, the Royal Shakespeare Company, Puppet Theatre Barge and the Royal Lyceum, Edinburgh. I have experience with a variety of puppetry styles including large scale walkabout, rod, shadow and long string marionettes.
I am a co-founder and associate artist of young puppetry company Loaded Object Theatre (formerly Wondering Hands Theatre).
In my own work I love to create worlds and start conversations. I believe in the power of puppetry to transport audiences young and old into uncharted waters, to open minds and hearts to new adventures, and new ways of seeing the familiar. I have always been passionate about stories. I love writing tales, plays and poems which combine the magical and the mundane, finding the extraordinary in the ordinary.
I was one of the Little Angel Theatre's Sponsored Artists for 2017 and have also co-tutored in drama at Queen Mary University of London.
