I make sound and music for theatre, dance and performance, specialising in devised and collaborative projects.
I have been working in the area of theatre sound for over 15 years, this followed a training in classical music and a BA in Sound and Image Design at Rose Bruford (1st class Hons, 2005). My passion is creating worlds and telling stories with a team of great collaborators.
I was resident Sound Designer and Collaborator with PanicLab (a Performance Art/Dance Theatre Company) between 2008-2016. This was a space in which I was able to develop my skills in devising and play - becoming a theatre-maker not just a designer.
I also work in education; teaching a multimedia course for 2 years at Midi music company in Deptford, working for Apple as a trainer for 12 years and delivering workshops in sound design for youth theatres in London and Bath.
I have also worked with Coney, Kiln, Stonecrabs Theatre company, Churchill Theatre Bromley, Prime Theatre Swindon and The Blue Elephant as Designer and Sound Design mentor for community and outreach based projects.

Other areas of interest for sound design/composition work include short film, live games, audio tours and walks, installation. I am seeking to develop my practice as a sound artist to make work for audiences outside of the theatre, to develop and inspect ideas I have been incubating for some time and ideas I have just had. I’m interested in:
Family and personal stories - archiving information and stories, family trees, things that are passed down and kept.
Finding magic in the everyday.
