Biography

Trained actor and theatre director specializing in text-based impact theatre. With a track record and passion for directing new works, my approach is Stanislavski/Uta Hagen-based and influenced by years of training as an actor and as a professional theatre practitioner. Trained in Stanislavski, Meisner, and classical acting, my work explores heightened realism, epic theatre, and post-dramatic expression of classical and contemporary text as a director.
I’m constantly delighted by the talent, commitment and drive of our students. Their curiosity and joy in the work gives us all energy and keeps me on my toes! My goal is to ensure that their voices serve their acting - both in theatre and recorded media. They need to be able to project, learn accents, respond to a wide variety of texts and have a voice that is healthy and be able to sustain long tours and tough filming schedules. This involves them working extremely hard – but having fun as well. When the new students see the final year students in production for the first time I know they’ll come into class the next day fully understanding the high standard they’re working to achieve.
