One of my greatest passions is for the development of new musicals and the re-exploration of preexistent works. Working text with a bookwriter or lyricist is my happy place, and my expertise in music and movement allows me to engage with new musical theatre writing with a wholistic dramaturgical eye. I am always keen to meet new writers and discuss evolving projects, at whatever stage they might be on their journey.

If you have a project you would like to discuss please do contact me c/o
