I am based at 20 Grosvenor Gardens, Willesden Green, London NW2 4QP, by the Willesden Green tube station.

I serve as Artistic Director of the arts co-operative Owl Art Studio, at the same address.

Since arriving in London in 1986, I have worked as an osteopath and movement instructor with a broad range of the community with groups ranging from the disabled to movement professionals, in settings from universities to prisons.
In the entertainment industry I have worked with, among others, Russell Brand, Bill Nighy, Eddy Izzard, and Lionel Bart; and regularly at the Shaftesbury Theatre.
Since 1996 I have regularly taught well-received workshops at the Actors Centre, the Actors Equity training centre in Covent Garden, London. This work is based on the physical theatre skills studied in Paris, London, and Canada.

As a founding member and Artistic Director of Owl Art Studio, I have been engaged in large community art projects, including five hugely popular tree-sized carvings in Gladstone Park, NW2; and the clearing and landscaping of an entire city street, Stanley Gardens, in Willesden Green.
I have as well been continuously engaged in my own personal work as an artist, in drawing, painting, sculpting and printmaking, exhibiting both alone and as part of Owl Art Studio.

Other interests include: bilingual (French); musical instrument (flute); martial art (hapkido); sport (acrobatics); trained and worked as an auctioneer; former street-performer in Covent Garden (clown/tumbler); regular yoga practitioner and teacher; extensively travelled through North America, Europe, and Asia; and am a keen gardener and hopeless bibliophile.
