I work in theatre because I've never wanted to work anywhere else, and it makes me happy.
I studied English at St Andrews university, and then went on to spend a couple of years at drama school. Trying to forge an acting career was an enjoyable belly flop, during which time I realised that, actually, what I liked best was being one of the people who supports the work and makes it happen. Following this, I spent several years working at the National Theatre in fundraising. Then, through the Step Change initiative, I was able to spend time at Soho Theatre and the Young Vic learning about general management. This took me to Theatre503, where I helped run things for three years, before coming to Fuel.
It's a great place to be. I'm surrounded by brilliant people making wonderful work, and I'm thrilled to be part of the team taking Fuel into the future.
