I’m a Newcastle-based theatre maker who aims to take art out of venues and into the places that people live and learn.
Through my participatory arts practice, I collaborate with others to celebrate and tell stories that are often unheard. I believe that brilliant things happen when you bring people together. You’ll usually find me in care homes, schools, and community centres because this is where I think quality art is made.

I co-founded Woven Nest Theatre, with my creative partner Liv Hunt. We are a workshop-led company who celebrate ageing through art. We run a program of activity for unpaid carers, older people, and children. Our current performance in research and development explores caring and being cared for and will tour in 2023.

As well as directing Woven Nest, I’m Curious Monkey’s associate director, where I deliver their creative program ‘Troupe’ for care experienced young people. This youth-led program tackles important social issues through creative storytelling and I am constantly inspired by the young people who take part.


“I didn’t feel like an activist when I joined, but UNION helped me to realise that writing protest songs with 90 year olds is still a form of activism! I’ve learnt from the Union team how to set-up an environment that enables strangers to feel at home. I’ve always felt that honesty and openness has been celebrated at UNION.”
