I am a writer and freelance artist who specializes in working with educators, communities and young people both in the UK and overseas. I was writer in residence at the Chester Gateway in 2000 and more recently I wrote and directed a community production, 'Â€Â˜Milestones'Â€Â™, for Watford Palace TheatreÃ¢Â€Â™s 100th birthday, in collaboration with a range of communities. I am currently working for Birmingham Royal Ballet in collaboration with the Youth Services as Artistic Director of a new version of Cinderella devised with, and to be performed by, young people (aged 13-21) in the Birmingham Hippodrome in December 2010. Though most of my commissions as a writer are in the field of theatre and playwriting, I have also written and edited a textbook, teacher support materials and work packs for educators at all levels (primary to secondary). I was also formerly Education Manager at CardiffÃ¢Â€Â™s Sherman Theatre, and I have run writing and theatre workshops with young people and teachers around the world. I was Creative Learning Programme Manager for Arts Council England South East in 2007-8. I have done a number of site specific projects working with museums and cultural organisations. I am currently doing an MA in Cultural Memory.
