ABOUT ME

Although I have been a photographer since my teens this passion was overtaken by my other, for acting. After studying drama at Gothenburg I enrolled at Mountview Theatre School, London; where I trained with the late great stage fighter William Hobbs, before going on to help him train RADA students.  Later I trained at the New York Actors Studio and with Phillipe Gaullier, Sankai Juko and Complicite; as well as running drama courses in London, Athens and LA. I spent many years touring as an actor and workshop leader; latterly directing and then forming my own theatre company, staging productions in Dublin and at the Edinburgh Festival.

 

I have now returned to my first passion, photography (and now film making) where hopefully my work benefits from an actor and director's eye; an eye always looking for the story within.
