I am a UK-based artist specialising in writing, devising, producing, acting, and directing original work. My main medium is theatre and I curate online content. 

Having studied with The Russian School of acting, Wolverhampton University and Sandwell College, these experiences also led me into using the arts in educational settings which evolved into curating, writing and deliveing bespoke workshops for The Donmar Warehouse, The CMK Foundation South Korea, The Verbier Festival in Switzerland, The National Youth Theatre, The Lyric Hammersmith and The Old Vic.
