I believe that the theatre is a fundamental playground for engaging the world, and reflecting on who and what we are as humans. My work is interested in how we spin the yarn of our existence and exploits. In other words, I am fascinated by the human need to mythologise itself.
I’m originally from South Africa, where I spent a number of years studying and teaching psychology. It was at some point during my research into daydreaming that I realised I was being pulled towards something else. A life in the arts was my fantasy. So it was that I packed up my life in sunny South Africa and moved to the UK to begin in the theatre. Since then I have studied Drama and Theatre at Royal Holloway College and Theatre Directing at RADA. My productions so far have run the gambit from Shakespeare, to new writing, to a couple of plays I wrote myself.
