Empowerment. Creativity. Connection.

I’m a voice artist, writer, designer, composer and educator. I also offer consultancy work in the areas of creativity and education.
My career has been in the performing arts – working at the meeting point of theatre, dance and improvisation all over the world. I have always moved between professional performance-making and teaching: training performers & teachers, school & tertiary work, developing my own approach to psycho-physicality (see ‘Self-With-Others’ in the blog), running community projects and offering corporate work. I was even an academic for a while. I’ve worked frequently in India, and in China, Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, Colombia, America, Mexico, and in almost every European nation. My non-teaching work has included directing dance, theatre and circus, performing, mentoring, lecturing and establishing networks of collaboration and communication.
Now I focus on online teaching, voice recording and running some e-shops to share my design work & cartoons. You can find out all about all of it on this website.
I have also become increasingly concerned with areas of mental health and self-care as I experienced the toll overwork took on me.
I was born in North Wales (UK) in 1964. I graduated from Hull University with a degree in English Literature before completing a Masters Degree in Theatre at Leeds University.
I’ve lived in the UK, then Australia, then back in the UK. I now live in Ireland.
Now I travel less, think deeper and sleep more.
If there is a common strand linking everything I do it is perhaps this – we are all innately, wonderfully, uniquely creative. The challenge – the wonderful challenge – is to find, protect, grow and share our unique gifts in whatever way is safest and most appropriate for each of us.
If you think I can help you with that journey in any way, please get in touch.
