I’m a freelance arts journalist, theatre critic and academic. My journalism has been published in The Guardian, The Stage, Time Out, IdeasTap, UK Theatre Magazine (previously Prompt), The Space, WhatsOnStage and Fest Magazine.
Circles and Stalls
I’m based in central Manchester so most of the theatre and performance I see is in the Greater Manchester area. However, I regularly venture further afield in the North – mainly to Sheffield, Liverpool and Leeds. After a significant break from writing, I’m currently finding my way again through blogging. I mainly write about Manchester-based shows, but not exclusively.
Cultural Shenanigans is a blog about theatre in and around Manchester. I really enjoy seeing and writing about less mainstream shows, finding out what’s coming up and sharing the most intriguing productions with as many people as possible.
Live Art Alive
Privileged to see individuals confront their demons and share their journey toward positive change in my psychotherapy practice. Intrigued by people and inspired by how the Arts can positively impact the human spirit somewhere each and every day. Passionate about theatre and the arts. Lover of the mosh pit at gigs.
