Audio Producer. Director. Writer.

 

I’m a professional storyteller, with a passion for radio, podcasting and journalism. My audio success is built on a 15-year career as an award-winning theatre director, dramaturg and playwright, when I specialised in creating original work. I thrive on developing ideas from initial concept to production. I love working collaboratively as a team member or as a leader, skills I’ve enhanced while producing audio for flagship BBC programmes.
