I am a prolific children’s theatre writer with 20 years of experience and over 60 commissioned plays, musicals and operas under my belt. As an educator I have delivered countless workshops and lectures to children of all ages on topics including creative writing, theatre producing, public speaking, and fundraising. As a producer (and mentor) I have worked on and supported numerous productions, nationwide tours, and international projects.
Whatever the project, I put the audience at the heart of my work, with emphasis on charting and respecting their emotional journey through the story. With a particular skill in making educational content interesting inspiring, and fun, I am now taking my writing and producing experience into the world of Children’s Media.
I have a specialist interest in empowering children to understand the science behind their Big Feelings through stories and songs.
