    Industry Background

    I have been active in the arts since graduating from my Acting degree, and I regularly undertake research connected to the art of performing and directing.

    Professional Activities

    I have been teaching at B&FC since 2015, during which time I also undertook my Master’s degree specific to Grotowski’s Poor Theatre and how this connects pedagogically to directing.

    Why B&FC?

    At B&FC we are able to tailor an education that is right for you, as opposed to a generic system of learning that does not place the student at its heart.
