Currently working on:

Creating: The Paper Balloon Radio Show for Paper Balloon Theatre
Welcome to my site.
 
I'm a writer, performer and storyteller with a particular interest in comedy and making work for young people. 
 
My earliest memory is of watching puppets on a barge. I was hooked on drama the minute I was cast as 'poor hungry boy' in a school play, aged 5. (I went method and skipped breakfast). 
 
I'm never happier than when immersing myself in a new story, through all kinds of media - which is why I work across platforms now. 
 
I graduated from the University of Exeter with a first-class degree in Drama in 2006 and have been working in theatre ever since. In 2012 I co-founded Paper Balloon Theatre Company and am now Artistic Director. We make original theatre for young people and their families. 
 
I am a member of the Kaylosia Comedy Collective, with whom I write, perform and shout shouty nonsense. 
 
I also have extensive experience as an education practitioner, some of which is detailed here
 
I'm very passionate about my work; I feel that anything you enjoy this much is worth working hard for. 
 
I wear lots of different hats (some sensible, some not so much) in my job - you can find most of them detailed on this site.
