He recently designed A Midsummer Night's Dream for Deafinitely Theatre at Shakespeare's Globe.
Alongside this he is developing a series of multi-disciplinary collaborations with different community and professional groups for Daedalus Theatre Company, including the storytelling project East.
He is also working at the R&D stage of a few new projects including Alex Swift's Travesty, which had an R&D showing at Ovalhouse in June. Another recent project was Balloon, directed by Carolyn Deffrin, which was shown as a work-in-progress at Chelsea Theatre and The Yard.
