I'm a freelance creative based in North Wales. 

I believe that the creative arts are a tool for our communities and advocate for social change 

through literary & performing arts.

Bio.

At the heart of my work, you'll find community. 

I believe in the power of the arts to connect people to the concept through Lived Experiences. As a multi-discipline creative, I use poetry, spoken word, theatre, and music in my work and facilitation across the UK.

I've supported international performers such as Neil Hilborn, Rudy Franscisco, and Sophie McKeand. I've performed at nationally renowned venues such as The Lowry, Everyman Theatre and Playhouse, Wales Millenium Centre and at events such as National Theatre Wales Big Democracy, Bang! Said the Gun and Storm of the Golden Sky.

I've been lucky to facilitate workshops in a variety of communities.

 I'm a National Theatre Wales TEAM Panel member, co-founder of North Wales Creative Network, and the Artistic Director for Voicebox Spoken Word in Wrexham, North Wales. 

Current projects include Me, You, and S.C.B.U., a creative writing series and anthology for Neonatal parents, funded by Literature Wales.

I am also part of the National Theatre Wales Located Residency 2019-2020 with my project Of the Earth, an exploration of place, protest, and heritage based in North East Wales.
