I am a creative producer, project manager and artist. I work across a range of performing arts projects, and am particularly interested in visual performance work that is collaborative, cross-artform and site specific.
As a freelance creative producer/project manager, I have worked throughout the UK and internationally. I have developed strong working partnerships with two companies in particular: Crying Out Loud (directed by Rachel Clare) and Dance Touring Partnership. Through work for these companies and other freelance projects, I have gained extensive experience of instigating & managing performances, tours, and festivals, with a focus on cross artform, outdoor and site specific events.
I am interested in a range of research across the arts, and have worked on projects at Middlesex University and Leeds Metropolitan University. I also work as a consultant for event planning and management, arts development, and artistic/collaborative facilitation. Recent projects in these areas include consultancy for a new international festival of contemporary performance in Leeds, and project management for Yorkshire Festivals Network and the UK Centre for Events Management.

As an artist, I am interested in creating performance for small spaces in non-conventional performance settings, often with a mixture of professional and non-professional performers with a collaborative approach.
