Brief Summary
I'm a creative producer and arts manager based in London.

I believe producing and business strategy is an inherently creative process, and I place myself as a macro-level leader and supporter within my work, collaborating with micro-level leaders who directly create the piece, performance or project. Thus I am an artist shaping the business vehicle that others' creativity exists within. My mind is usually focused upon or captivated by innovation, stability within business, chaos within creativity and playfulness with art forms.

I am also an experienced general manager, covering project management, business development, negotiation, contracting, finance, HR, recruitment, child protection law, and intellectual property needs.

My own artistic practice is centered upon physical and design-centric theatre.

I currently work with young creative freelancers and entrepreneurs, providing them an office based at IdeasTap and professional development within their discipline or start up business.

I'm available for associate producing of interdisciplinary, site-specific or performance projects, CV reviews, or creative business planning.
