I am passionate about creating diverse stories that are rooted in our modern society. I want to create plays that offer opportunities for actors of all colours and shapes and sizes. I am committed to using my voice to explore what makes us human, all the good things and the bad things that we do to, and for each other.

I am dedicated to nurturing all forms of new writing. I read for the annual New Jersey Young Playwrights Competition, the Space, Tamasha and as part of the London Playwriting Lab.

As a director I work exclusively with new writing, and young people.

Theatre is perfect for analysing, exploring and commenting on our ever-changing society; it can lead the way for social change.  As a follower of the work of Augusto Boal (I  trained with his son (Julian) in Rio de Janeiro), I will always keep the foundations of Theatre of the Oppressed within my work.
