North East UK-born, Malta-based theatre-maker, director, playwright, football lover, sci-fi nut, serial theatre and movie-goer, Whovian, lover of good literature and husband to the beautiful Michelle...


I created this site because my endless experiences needed a place to live. Now, the projects I'm working on and the ones I have done can live on.


It also offers people the opportunity to see who I am, what I do and give anyone the chance to contact me should they want to talk about future collaborations.


My journey is ongoing and has been varied; but my life's work continues to be to assist people to reach their full potential and I strive to leave a legacy that shows that I made a difference.
