An independent self producing artist I was Born in Liverpool in 1964 and started out on the cities burgeoning alternative arts and music scene of the 1980's. before going on to study at The Birmingham School of Speech Training and Dramatic Art (BA Acting) and later at The Central School of Speech and Drama - London University (MA Drama amd Movement Therapy). Both institutions tried to remove any individual artisitc integrity or passion I had by trying to mould me in order to fit into the commercial mainstream. This was never going to work. Since that time I've been writing and performing a collective mix of song, stories, poetry and observational humour.

 

In 2011, I moved lock, stock and barrel as they say, to Berlin, Germany. Having always identified as European rather than soley British or English, the move made perfect sense.  A passion for the cities arts and cultural history led me to write and produce my debut Berlin show: A Cabaret Story - Berlins Live Historical Revue. To my surprise it received International attention during its unprecedented five year run at the aptly named Sally Bowles Arts Cafe in the historic Nollendorf Platz area. In addition it also was featured on Channel Four's 'Road Trip' series, as well as Swedish Television STV1 and performed at Gazarte Cultural Hub, Athens, Greece and The Hotel Adlon (Kempinski) Berlin.

 

In 2017, my focus turned towards Berlin born Icon and Hollywood silver screen legend Marlene Dietrich, with a new show entitled Tea With Marlene. This opened up the new  Innovation Art Theatre in Wilmersdorf and although didn't achieve the dizzying heights of my earlier work was never the less quite well received. In 2019, I  received German citizenship and now reside happily as a dual national in the heart of Europe.
