I am a writer

A ‘yes-but-no-but-yes-but‘ writer, some days ‘playwright’, others days ‘theatremaker’, but always pleased by the makerly meaning of ‘wright’. While trying to stop the wheels on this well-worn baggage from squeaking too much, I write texts for performance.

But haven’t always been

I’ve worked as an independent producer, a designer, and an editor, and these things shape and inform my work. I continue to produce graphic design for performance and a host of other things I share sporadically on my blog.


I am an associate artist with Theatre Lovett who specialise in work for young audiences.

I am currently theatre artist in residence at Dunamaise Arts Centre.

I was an Arts Council Next Generation Artist in 2017. 

My first play, In Dog Years I’m Dead was a winner of the Stewart Parker Trust Emerging Playwright Award 2013.

I was a participant in Irish Theatre Institute’s Six in the Attic Artists Supports Programme in 2018-2019. Irish Theatre Institute has included my profile on Irish Playography, where you can also buy a copy of In Dog Years I’m Dead.
