“Find out the reason that commands you to write; see whether it has spread its roots into the very depth of your heart; confess to yourself you would have to die if you were forbidden to write.” ― Rilke
Practitioner in writing, narrative design, video and live games, interactive and immersive storytelling and art, theatre, mobile apps, locative experiences, audio and film.
Creative Practice Doctorate in Playable Stories: Writing and Design Methods for Negotiating Narrative and Player Agency in Physical, Digital and Physical-Digital Hybrid Forms, from University of Exeter. Part-time Lecturer at Falmouth University in the School of Writing and Games Academy.
My expertise is in the fields of writing, narrative form, gaming, performance, interactive art, immersive theatre and digital publishing and technologies. I currently split my time between Story Juice and academia, with my research continually informing Story Juice’s work.
My own practice often explores the concepts and tensions around authorial design, audience agency and improvisation, encoded and emergent narratives and experiences in live, digital and live-digital hybrid immersive work.
My previous career was in journalism as an award-winning journalist, with experience as a reporter, blogger, web producer and online editor on local and national newspapers and websites in the UK and Brazil. I'm experienced managing written, video, audio, picture and social media content.
