Directing

As a director I have worked with a variety of different companies and practitioners in a variety of contexts.  I pride myself on being able to adapt to different styles and work out the needs of any given particular piece. 

I have worked with small and midscale touring productions, site specific in both in and outdoor spaces.The following are examples of some of my freelance work.
