I work part-time for Oxfam GB in Oxford, and spend the rest of the week on playwriting projects around the UK. At Oxfam I’m an Internal Communications Advisor, attached to different projects within the organization. I’m writing plays for the Nuffield Theatre in Southampton, the Finborough Theatre in London, and ABG Productions.

I was in Sixth Form at Thomas Hardye 2007 to 2009, where I studied English Literature, Maths and History A-Levels. I then went to Jesus College, Oxford to do a BA in English, and Lincoln College for an MA in English and American Studies. After university, I worked for Shakespeare Schools Festival, a youth theatre charity, for around 6 months. I then started doing a range of theatre writing and production work, working on shows in the West End and putting my plays on in fringe theatres around London.
