I trained both in Fine Art (Goldsmith's College, London) and in Acting (Teatr Pieśń Kozła, Poland). I have performed in London and internationally with the devising company Mkultra, written and directed two short films (including the short film Paragon screened at Edinburgh International Film Festival), and written a feature-length film.
In 2003 I met and formed a close collaboration with the Greek actress Maria Savvidou, a core member of the National Theatre of Greece. I was invited to observe rehearsals and subsequently did so on many occasions over a period of three years. The quality of the work of this company and the approach of the director Stathis Livathinos (who had studied under Lev Dodin), became an unforgettable reference point.
I have been directing productions, teaching workshops and coaching actors privately for eight years with techniques significantly informed by this experience as well as by the physical and musical theatre training of Teatr Pieśń Kozła (Song of the Goat Theatre).
My theatre directing credits include The Cherry Orchard; A Skull in Connemara; The Lonesome West (Critics Choice, Time Out) The Proposal and Alcestis.
