Profile Information

What I do:
I'm an Equity registered Fight Director of 21 years and have also been a stage combat tutor for 24 years. Am based in Cardiff and have been teaching at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama since 2005
A little more about me:
I love collaboration with actors. I started out in acting, so seeing a scene come alive is very exciting. I love pushing the boundaries and challenging myself and others to see how a 'stage combat fight' should look and feel. I'm into 'realism', and to me watching a fight on stage or screen needs to have that edge. I'm always striving for that.
Location:
Cardiff, Wales
Projects I’m working on:
Since the last update, I've been very busy of late, fight directing at The National, Shakespeare's Globe, Liverpool Everyman, Hollyoaks(Channel 4), national tours, a bit of writing and am prepping for my 2nd show as director
