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, Television and Interactive Media Department at the University of York. You can read more about my teaching experience here.

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 few other projects within the theatre sector, which you can read about here.
