I have taught theatre all over the world and performed with and for princes and queens, but I have never been happier as I am now teaching and directing the theatre royalty of the future.
I have been an advocate for Arts Education in the schools for all my life from my first classes in Cambridge, England to my life here in Winchester. My family has had to live and breathe theatre.
