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 Royal Shakespeare Company, 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 recently directed for The Merry Wives of Windsor for the Royal Shakespeare Company, which I also composed the music for. In 2018 I also directed Supervet Live - the Arena tour of Noel Fitzpatrick (the Supervet)’s one-man-show, and Dynamo Live at the Abandoned Room, the new theatre show starring the magician Dynamo.
This summer/autumn I will direct a new musical written by Jonathan Harvey and The Pet Shop Boys.
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.
