My peer-reviewed article ‘The Scrapbook as an Archive: Collecting and Curating in the Kate Terry Scrapbook’ was published in Theatre Notebook, 75:1, 2021. The original version of this article submitted for my MA in History of Design at the Royal College of Art and the Victoria & Albert Museum received the Gillian Naylor Award for object-based research.

I am particularly interested in writing articles for theatre programmes. I was delighted to adapt an academic essay about the 1993 National Theatre revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel into a a programme article for the 25-year reunion concert at Cadogan Hall in 2019. If programme articles are something I can help you with, please do get in touch.
I’m also a first-time aspiring biographer researching a certain American baritone and film star – watch this space!
