Hello! Thank you for visiting my website. It is great to see you [insert full name here] I really appreciate you being here on your (delete as appropriate) phone/computer/tablet from [insert town name here].
I am a Performer, Creator and Hat Collector born in London and bred Straight Outta...Kent. My passion for collecting hats (of which I have over 100 - range from the simple bowler à la Chaplin to a turkey shaped hat à la Christmas). My hat collecting of which has slowed down mostly due to storage acts as a hobby but also as a metaphor for the ongoing gathering of new skills, ideas, roles and characters...
In my role as a creator I have devised and produced the solo show SLOB under the company Theatre85 which toured the UK, Spain and Paris. I am also constantly writing prose of all kinds and submitting it to various outlets for publication/performance. Mostly recently, The Skinned Knee Collective presented my work on their artists blog.
As a performer I am currently touring with Forum Theatre and Education in Spain, now on the road into my fourth season. In the three years I have worked for this company I have played the The Mad Hatter, Gulliver, a ladybug, a sleeping snail and so many more - as well as voicing a number of puppets. Before working in Spain I performed on several occasions as a giant penguin, as well as acting to over 2000 people every night in The London Coliseum - each experience shaping me as a performer as well as a human (of sorts).
