I have now been writing about the arts for over a decade, having reviewed hundreds of productions in that time. My passion for arts criticism takes me from tiny pub venues to grand auditoriums, and everything in between. I am an Associate Editor for Wales Arts Review and have also contributed to publications such as The Stage and WhatsOnStage.
Other roles I’ve carried out as a freelance artist include playwright, performer, workshop leader, marketer, dramaturg, proofreader and podcaster. For pretty much my entire adult life, I’ve loved and championed what is exciting about the arts. The companies, the venues, the art-forms and the voices. Critically Speaking is my attempt to share that passion with other people. People like you.
