I am a theatre and opera director from Dublin, Ireland. 
I trained on Rough Magic's SEEDS programme and on the NT Directors' Course in London. I was a Young Artist at the Glimmerglass Festival in 2014 and 2015. 

For the 2018-19 season I was the The Jerry & Dulcy Rosenberg Resident Stage Director, sponsored in honour of Tomer Zvulun, at the Atlanta Opera. This season I directed  Silent Night at Austin Opera, as well as working on Charlie Parker's Yardbird, West Side Story, Eugene Onegin, Maria de Buenos Aires and La Traviata in Atlanta.

I studied at Trinity College, Dublin, at Royal Holloway in London, and at the School of Theatre, Film and Television at UCLA. I also spent two years on a Japanese Government Scholarship at Waseda University in Tokyo, which led to my spending over a year studying with director Yukio Ninagawa. 

I write and present a weekly podcast about Shakespeare's Hamlet. You can listen to it here.
