I’m a freelance arts journalist, theatre critic and academic.

My journalism has been published in The Guardian, The Stage, Time Out, IdeasTapUK Theatre Magazine (previously Prompt), The SpaceWhatsOnStage and Fest Magazine. I am also a regular contributor to the TheatreVoice podcast.

I was one of the editors of Exeunt between 2012 and 2014, during which time I was responsible for commissioning and editing features. In April 2014 and April 2015 I was deputy editor of Noises Off, the in-house magazine of the National Student Drama Festival.

I completed my PhD in the Drama Department at Royal Holloway, University of London in 2018. You can find out more about my academic research and publications here. I have also worked as a part-time lecturer in the Department of Drama at the University of Manchester and the Theatre, Film and Television Department at the University of York.

In my capacity as a critic, I regularly speak on panels and run workshops for theatres including the National Theatre, Lyric Hammersmith, Royal Exchange Theatre, Theatre Royal Winchester, Salisbury Playhouse, Lighthouse Poole, London Bubble and Z-Arts.

Finally, I’ve worked on a couple of other writing projects, which you can read about here.
