With a passion for authentic and honest storytelling, Jess is fascinated with body language and the nuance of non-verbal communication. Her interest in theatre extends from a desire to expose the inner workings of the human psyche – revealing the instinctual, the carnal, the flawed vulnerability.
As co-founder of Fight or Flight Productions, Jess is an Associate Artist of The Lion and Unicorn Theatre. She is also currently Associate Director for Proforça Theatre Company, for whom she co-directed Standing Ovation Nominated AAAAA and At Last, and directed OffComm commended FEEL MORE; has directed several shorts for Falling Pennies; and has worked regularly with The Space - including OnComm commended LOVE/RUIN as part of their online season 'Locked Down Looking Up' and the debut run of Katie Duncan's REFUGE for Foreword Fest 2021 (available to stream here).
