“A love of theatre. As a writer / director / producer I am continuously developing new works and developing relationships with performers, musicians and fellow writers. Although I have a vision and a desire to tell my own stories, I also love the creative process of working with others and creating theatre which engages the public. My work is continuously reviewed as being lyrical and poetic and yet remains for me highly political and personal.”
