I love to be on stage and collaborate with creative teams in high frequency environments filled with laughter.

 

I have dedicated many years of my life to the Performing Arts, learning and working in many fields: I am a creative performer and educator, skilled in organising creative adventures, fundraising, leading teams, project design and management. Through somatic and artistic education I explore the possibility of contributing towards a more loving and conscious world, specially through the practice of Yoga, clowning and improvisation.
