the team at team...

Agent & Managing Director

I founded TEAM in 2020, keen to make a home for the brilliant storytellers and theatre makers I have the great pleasure of working with. My work at TEAM is grounded in nurturing talent & most importantly, the humans behind it, alongside providing strategic career support.

I’ve been advocating for artists for a long time: from the early part of my career working in producing & planning departments at a number of producing theatres & as an independent producer, and since 2011, as a literary & creatives’ agent. 

I am a Mancunian born and raised, and was a trustee of the Royal Exchange Theatre from July 2017 to March 2022.

Like most Manchester-folk, I like to think I do things a little bit differently…



People have always been at the heart of every part of my working life and I have had the privilege of working with some exceptional theatre makers. 

After studying at Hull University, I moved to London and worked nationally and internationally as a stage manager, company manager and most recently in the Planning Department at the National Theatre. 

I have now relocated back home to the beautiful Peak District and am delighted to be working at TEAM.
