My experience in arts organisations across the UK informs my work as a consultant in the creative sector; from small arts venues to international initiatives. This can involve programme development, business development and strategy to audience and engagement initiatives alongside marketing and profile development. I was also privileged to be chosen to represent the UK by the British Council in 2009, on a Young Leaders of the Creative Industries visit to China where we spent time in Shanghai and X’tian. I’m still in touch with my Chinese contacts, sharing ideas and new ways of working.
I have also developed marketing and engagement initiatives for different arts organisations, including Anteros Arts Foundation (Norwich and Bergh Apton, Norfolk).
I’ve undertaken roles as Artistic Director of venues, festivals and touring theatre companies, including Artistic Director of March Town Hall Theatre (2005-06), Director of The Peterborough Festival (2006-08) and Programme Manager of The Garage (2008-09).
I’ve also produced and co-produced a number of productions and full seasons with theatres and music programmes.
I’m a founding director of Fenland Theatre Arts Courses and March Town Hall Theatre. As well as professional directing and writing, I also teach for a number of youth theatre programmes and The Young Actors Company.
