I teach playwriting and radio drama writing to undergraduate and postgraduate students at the University of Essex. Alongside this, I am researching for a PhD in Playwriting and Climate Change.


I have worked on a wide variety of literature and writer development projects.


Until 2018, I was a freelance arts marketing consultant, advising clients throughout the East of England and beyond on all aspects of communications, audience development and strategic marketing planning.

Pretty much everyone I follow has been commenting on this picture tonight. If a picture is 1000 words, then this, right here, is an essay on why subsidy is all and how we know Germany takes theatre very seriously.

I really hope @GeorgeMonbiot is right and we are entering a new era where disastrous, backward 20th century road projects, especially @NorfolkCC's Wensum/western link road and Oxford-Cambridge expressway are challenged and blocked in court
