I am an emerging Creative Producer based in Bristol. I am Founder and Artistic Director of Contemporary Performance Collective Up The Ante, and Associate Producer for Bath Spa Productions. My work often centres around artistic collaboration and rich devising processes. I am passionate about creating bold, punchy, contemporary theatre, and am most excited by experiments, creative risks and new challenges. I also have more than ten years of experience as a Facilitator with adults as well as young people of all ages in a wide variety of environments including Bristol Shakespeare Festival, Stagecoach Performing Arts Schools and Shambala Festival.
I am currently studying towards her MA in Creative Producing at Bath Spa University and her Level 5 Teaching English as a Foreign Language at the TEFL academy. I also hold a BA (Hons) in Drama With Creative Writing from Bristol's UWE.
