I am a highly experienced creative practitioner whose work focuses mainly upon the climate and ecological crisis. I have particular interest in the way that an open, creative, participatory approach can be used to encourage the development of ecosystems where all species can flourish. I am also committed to developing work which explores how we can take inspiration from the natural world to create places and spaces where regenerative cultures flourish.

About Me

I love stories so it will come as no surprise that I began my working life as a theatre director. From the primary school nativity through numerous school plays, followed by many happy years in youth theatre, I went on to undertake professional training at Contact Theatre through their Young Directors’ programme, and at Middlesex University, RESAD Madrid, and GITIS Moscow. From this starting point I began a creative journey which has now lasted for more than twenty years.

Now my professional life is a mixture of running my own creative business, Small Things Creative Projects, and working on a range of projects for many different organisations and partners in a freelance capacity. At the foundation of everything that I do is an exploration of stories – the ones we tell, the ones we would like to tell, and the ones that we haven’t even imagined yet.

I am also co-ordinator for a local community group working to maintain and improve 120 acres of meadows and woodland at the point where the River Roch and River Irwell converge in Bury, North Manchester.
