Having left the insurance industry to pursue a career as a theatre producer, I produced the sell out, world premiere of Returning to Haifa at Finborough Theatre in March 2018. The play was adapted from the Palestinian author Ghassan Kanafani's novella of the same name. The book was adapted by Ismail Khalidi and Naomi Wallace and directed by Caitlin McLeod.

I was awarded a Stage One Bursary in April 2019 and am currently producing Tiger Mum, written and performed by Eva Edo and directed by Alice Malin, at VAULT Festival. I am also co-producing Maybe This is What it Looks Like by Bobbi Byrne, directed by Peter McMaster and The Real Deal with Katie Bonna.
I have worked with Vicky Graham Productions as an Assistant Producer. Projects included a new musical comedy, Thor & Loki, which premiered at Edinburgh Fringe 2018 and an adaptation of The Iron Woman by Ted Hughes. In 2018 and 2019 I was also a fundraising assistant with Iris Theatre.
