Based in Lincolnshire, I have worked for more than 20 years across the East Midlands region.
Employed roles, include Nottinghamshire County Council as Festivals Officer, and as West Lindsey’s District Council Arts Development Officer.
Since becoming freelance some 13 years ago, I have worked with a variety of clients including theatre companies, local authorities, arts organisations, Voluntary Sector Organisations and charities.
My biggest passion is Theatre and producing new work especially working with young people!
I have a wide experience of cultural development, to address issues such as social inclusion, cultural tourism and crime & disorder.
I run a street theatre company - Curious Creations, which I co-produce for, and we supply acts all year round, across the country.
I am a regular producer for Shooting Fish Theatre Company, who specialise in new writing and education.
Fundraising for various cultural organisations is a big part of my work.
I have experience working on a variety of funded projects including through the Arts Council, HLF, Children in Need, Awards for All, and numerous other trusts and foundations.
When not getting involved in culture I love organising exciting travel adventures!
