I write and produce multimedia interactive experiences.
I've created work for Sparkle, Yum Tum, Co Reality Collective, Boomtown Fair, Shambala Festival, Digital Burning Man, Jury Games, Kriya Arts, Rogue Beacon, and for my own company, Cosmic Joke Productions. My flagship game, Wizards Against Lizards, has received great reviews from No Proscenium and Room Escape Artist.
My work is live, online and hybrid, in the form of theatre, game and party. I've created longform narratives over months, and 'one-night-only' happenings. I create strange and beautiful environments and scenarios, treating the ridiculous with reverence to empower the audience to be and say things they could never do in 'normal' life.
I aim for my work to tell stories the audience can contribute to, and for my work to enable positive internal change (which could be anything from a lifted spirit to a full-blown healing transformation). My audiences must feel empowered as a vital part of this process, if they didn't feel like they were an integral part of it, it hasn't worked.
Pre-Covid, I brought Wizards Against Lizards Live to Brighton Fringe Festival and Shambala Festival, and managed the Postal Posse venue at Boomtown Fair as theatrical lead, as well as producing events for Onecor.ai, Hillingdon Music Hub and others.
I live between Brighton and London, am always happy to travel, I thrive on juggling multiple projects at once and would love to hear about yours.
