Areas of expertise:


My passion is people, politics and art.

My work has taken me to many places around the world from the Gaza Strip, South Wales Valleys, the jungle in Calais and the circus in Cairo. Past projects has seen me work with survivors of domestic abuse, refugee and asylum seekers, female boxers, political prisoners in Palestine and unemployed young people from the Valleys.

I've worked extensively over the past five years for National Theatre Wales in community engagement and more recently as assistant director on ‘Mother Courage’ alongside John McGrath. My directing credits include ‘Everything Must Go’ Patrick Jones, ‘Take the Good, Leave the Bad’ National Theatre Wales, 'The People's Platform' National Theatre Wales.

I also work as a freelance facilitator and life coach. I am a 2015/16 Clore Fellow.
