Biography

Recipient of the Katharine Worth Award in Applied and Participatory Theatre from Royal Holloway University, graduate from Royal Holloway University with an MA in Applied and Participatory Theatre and previous graduate from Nottingham Trent University with a BA [Hons] in Theatre Design.
I am the Design Technician for the Department of Drama, Theatre and Dance at Royal Holloway University. As resident designer I organise, advise and help create all student, staff and outside individuals/companies requirements for set, costume and props. I run the costume and design workshop and am also the department’s photographer. I co-teach on the scenography course and run set, costume and prop workshops for various other modules within the department. Alongside this I freelance as a designer, maker and creative practitioner with a keen interest in developing work within applied and participatory theatre contexts. I have worked with a variety of theatre companies, organisations and in film as a designer, maker, practitioner, facilitator and assistant since 2009. My love for collaboration, storytelling and shared experiences drives my passion to work creatively.
