Podcasts. Theatre. Live Events.

I have seven years' experience working for some of the UK's leading theatres and production companies. 

I am currently producing A Voyage to Antarctica a new podcast for the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust as part of their Antarctica In Sight programme. 

I was Creative Development Associate at The Old Vic where I developed new work for the theatre, including: the One Voice monologue series, working closely with artists including Russell Brand, Maxine Peake, Lolita Chakrabarti and Adrian Lester; and the Voices Off talks programme.

Previously, I worked at Sonia Friedman Productions on over ten musicals and plays in under two years, including the development of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
