BIOGRAPHY

I'm a person who loves to move. I've been a freelancer since 2005 and this has enabled me to connect with people and communities across the world, as well as at home here in Scotland. My dance and physical theatre practice includes performing, choreographing, movement direction and teaching.

Projects in 2022 include: rehearsal director for Oona Doherty's Navy Blue on tour in Europe, choreographer for All or Nothing’s Flying Force community casts at Paisley Halloween Festival, movement director on Stamping Ground produced by Raw Material and Eden Court, associate movement director on National Theatre of Scotland's Orphans and performer on tour with Barrowland Ballet’s Tiger Trilogy.

Across 2021-22, I worked with All or Nothing as an aerial dance artist and facilitator on Creatability, which is an ongoing project with young people who are neurodivergent and/or have physical or learning disabilities.


In 2021 I was also an associate artist on Oona Doherty's Fly The Flag - a film project, produced by Fuel Theatre and commissioned by Sky Arts, where young people from across the UK explore freedom of expression and opinion. 

I am half of the creative duo, We Are Witches, with my friend and collaborator Kim Moore. WAW started as a creative outlet between friends during the first lockdown of 2020 and developed from there to making music and short dance films with each other and with young people.

I'm a founding member of Glasgow based contemporary dance company Barrowland Ballet which has enabled me to perform and travel worldwide over the years as well as lead on and develop participatory projects in local communities - most recent productions include the Tiger Trilogy, Poggle and Whiteout.

As a dance and movement artist, I've previously worked on projects with Raw Material, Cora Bisset, Grid Iron Theatre Company, BBC Alba, Akram Khan Company, Edinburgh International Festival, Scottish Ballet, National Theatre of Scotland, Michael Clark Company, Scottish Dance Theatre, Vox Motus Theatre Company, East London Dance and Y-Dance. ​

As a creative performer, I've worked with Caroline Bowditch Company, Stillmotion, David Hughes Dance, Freshmess Dance Company, Wee Stories and Alan Greig Dance Theatre. 


I trained at Edinburgh's Telford College from 2022-2005 where I gained a BA Honours in Dance and an HND in Professional Stage Dance.
