I am an Internationally renowned and award-winning theatre director and writer. My work has been seen at many of Britain’s top theatres including The National Theatre, The Old Vic, The Royal Court, the Welsh National Opera, the Sheffield Crucible, the Menier Chocolate Factory, the Nottingham Playhouse and the Royal Festival Hall, as well as in the West End, and in Europe and the USA.
I'm currently in pre-production for The Merry Wives of Windsor for the Royal Shakespeare Company, which I'm directing and also composing the music for. The production will play in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-Upon-Avon from July 2018, be broadcast live to cinemas nationwide in the autumn and play at the Barbican Theatre in London over Christmas
I have worked with some of the biggest names in British theatre including Benedict Cumberbatch, Daniel Craig, Ian McKellen, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Alastair McGowan, Frances Barber, Pauline Collins, Steph Fry, and Adrian Lester.
As part of my work in theatre I've worked closely with several senior Voice Directors including Jeanette Nelson (Head of Voice at the National Theatre and previously Voice Coach at Shakespeare’s Globe and the Royal Shakespeare Company), Annie Morrison (Speech Therapist and Head of Voice at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama), and Patsy Rodenburg (Head of Voice at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, Director of Voice at the Michael Howard Studios in New York City, and previously Head of Voice at the Royal National Theatre.)
In addition to work in the theatre I have worked as a Voiceover artist and have appeared on television - most notably as the Director Mentor in the 10-week Channel 4 series Musicool. I have appeared on Radio 4 on numerous occasions in a variety of programmes.
