I am an independent dance artist doing socially-engaged work in diverse communities whilst studying for a Masters in Applied Theatre part time at Goldsmiths University. I am a Co-Director of BLINK Dance Theatre: a neuro diverse group of five artists who devise and perform together. We lead inclusive workshops in a range of educational settings and are guest lecturers at Central School of Speech and Drama and Goldsmiths University.

I am a dancer and have a regular practice based in improvisation. I am an ambassador for Independent Dance and perform in the works of Gaby Agis and Florence Peake.

I have a background in playwork through The Parasol Project and specialise in working with children and young people with learning disabilities. I am currently involved in projects with Mousetrap Projects and Oxford Youth Dance (Cecilia Macfarlane). In 2015, I founded 'Disco Dadz' in partnership with Dancin' Oxford Festival which is a monthly dance and disco session for lone male caregivers and their children.

I have worked internationally with Brouhaha International on collaborative Carnival Arts projects in Goa, India and Cape Town, South Africa 2016, 2017.

I regularly collaborate with visual artist Roland Carline, creating community-led performance art projects.
