I'm interested in writing, directing, community arts.
'Small p political' and work that encourages social justice.
Using creative skills to make a difference in people's lives.
In recent years I've worked with arts practitioners to blend theatre and film with photography, poetry, graphic design and music to produce community events that engage and inspire people. I've had the pleasure to work with young people in the UK, USA, Africa and China on diverse projects including new writing plus a bit of Brecht, Pinter, Moliere and Shakespeare.
This is work I love.
My community based work with theatre and film. Also an opportunity to work with photographers, musicians, painters, writers, dancers and media.
I work with young people, old people, in rural landscapes and housing estates
- anywhere the arts can make a difference to people's lives.
I've been lucky enough to work in Malawi & Senegal
with a small UK charity - Purple Field Productions.
They specialise in making educational films with poorer communities in Africa, filming in their native languages (it can take a while).
I'm proud to have directed the first ever HIV drama in Malawi - MAWA LANGA (My Tomorrow) which has now been seen by over 4 million people and is regularly used in schools and colleges to discuss issues surrounding HIV/AIDS with young people.

When you talk about a great actor, you're not talking about Tom Cruise.
