I am a teacher and theatre director with over 25 years professional experience. I worked extensively as an actor in theatre, film and television before embarking on a career as a Director and Teacher.

I have a fully enhanced CRB.

I started working professional (for the National Theatre) when I was 15 and I have worked professional in the industry for over 25 years.
I come from a theatrical background, which in hindsight I now realise as an educator, was a marvellous gift, allowing me firsthand experience of a broad range of theatre and acting at the highest levels as well as access to the practitioners and makers of that theatre.
