I'm currently drawn to female-driven narratives, which also demonstrate political, social and technological progress, simply because I don't see them often enough. I'm not so much interested in an all too obvious theme or agenda. I believe in "show, don't tell". The most convincing argument is existence. We work to create something, then no one can deny it.


I value initiative and collaboration. Together we have much more experience to draw from, in order to refine our ideas. I trained in ensemble theatre and on every project we work as an ensemble. No person is more important that any other even though their job might be to have the final say. 


I love meeting other creatives, no matter what part of the industry they're interested in. I regularly meet with writers, actors and producers. I love hearing about their projects and helping them get eyes on their work, bums on seats or the contacts they need. We are building a network of supportive, genuine gems in the arts. Do you want to join my network?
