With a passion for authentic and honest storytelling, Jess is fascinated with body language and the nuance of non-verbal communication. Questioning social constructs and the factors that shape an identity, her curiosity feeds into her work, often resulting in an understated interrogation of human behaviour.
As co-founder of Fight or Flight Productions, Jess is an Associate Artist of The Lion and Unicorn Theatre, and has staged countless productions since 2012, including co-writing and directing their Standing Ovation Nominated production DON'T FORGET MY FACE in 2021. She is Associate Director for Proforça Theatre Company, for whom she co-directed Standing Ovation Nominated productions AAAAA and AT LAST, and directed OffComm commended FEEL MORE. Jess regularly works with The Space Theatre - including OnComm commended LOVE/RUIN as part of their online season 'Locked Down Looking Up', and the debut production of Katie Duncan's REFUGE for Foreword Fest 2021 (available to stream here).
