Live storytelling is the Rosetta Stone


I was born in Sydney to parents who are English and Canadian, and spent my childhood in Toronto, England, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Vancouver.

Finally settling in Western Canada, I trained as an actor, though worked as a sound designer and eventually moved into directing.

After completing my directing training in the UK, I split my career into teaching and directing. This involved combining teaching at LAMDA, the Royal Academy of Music, the Royal Academy of Dance, Carnegie Mellon University, Northeastern University & NYU's Tisch School for the Arts. I have directed, acted and designed productions in six countries, tackling material from Euripides to Pinter, from Shakespeare to Beckett, from Congreve to Chris Columbus.

My focus is on constantly re-examining the modern context of an old script. That also involves exploring new technology’s role in live performance, and examining the value of a live performer in technological media.
