South Wales based theatre MAKER come Nonsensical Ideasman
I’m a South Wales based Artist working across multiple forms as an individual, a collaborator and as a founding member of Tin Shed Theatre Co.
Over the past 11 years I have created my own work as well as having developed and performed work in the UK and internationally with; Tin Shed Theatre Co, The Bristol Old Vic, National Theatre Wales, Qube Art Gallery, China Plate, Battersea Arts Centre, San Diego Fringe, Alma Alter: Bulgaria, and the Birmingham REP.
In 2020 I was nominated by National Theatre Wales for the Evening Standard Future Theatre Makers Award for my work as a Director.
My training is in Performance, Directing and Devising Theatre with applied Filmmaking, and through my personal practice I create absurdist, comedic and raucous work that explores human experience, mental health, philosophy, art and pop-culture through a contemporary kind of clowning.
I'm also a freelance workshop facilitator focusing on working with children and young adults exploring their lives through devised theatre making, autobiographical story performance, and creative/experiential learning.

Kid Carpet, Common Wealth, BAC's Moving Roots
For the last two months I've been working as part of Common Wealth as a local Artist Facilitator co-creating a show with Kid Carpet and a group of Yr5 pupils from Glyn Yr Afon Primary school in Llanrumny.
The work is supported by Battersea Arts Centre and is part of the Moving Roots Touring Network.
CARPET Spoken Word, Awen Cultural Trust, Arts Council Wales
As one half of CARPET Spoken Word I've been working on our latest theatre performance PANTHERS.
Connecting with rural South Wales communities and creating a verbatim show that uses the stories and characters we encounter, we've been collaborating with Awen Cultural Trust with funding from Arts Council Wales.
