I have been specialising in improvisation and all things creative since the 1990s.

I teach through my own company Sprout Ideas, as well as being a tutor at West London University and The Court Theatre Drama School.

As well as teaching and performing improvisation I have directed and written for numerous artists including Phil Nichol, Stephen K Amos, Carey Marx, Felix Dexter and Laurence Clark.

If you fancy learning more about improvisation, acting, being spontaneous and more creative check out our intensive INTRO TO IMPRO

I also have a pet ferret called Bentley!
