    About me

    I am a theatre animal who found the satisfaction of team work and being part of the creative community while a student at the University of Auckland. I came to Europe in 1972, working first as a student ASM in France and then in the UK, in a variety of stage management positions in regional theatre, touring, London and West End. I have subsequently spent many years within Drama Centre London, first as Registrar and student welfare officer, then becoming Supervising Stage Manager, working on the public performances and tutoring first year acting and directing students in the "gentle art" of stage management - particularly the roles of DSM and ASM/props.. I established and ran a comprehensive prop store for the school. Have also worked as a prop buyer and taken up roles as a film extra.. Most recently, having left the school, I have worked on several fringe productions. It is the communal activity which I love and the satisfaction of knowing that no matter what one's age or background one can still support a creative team of staff and actors. I have dual nationality N.Z./UK and am applying for an Austrian passport which I should have no trouble acquiring within a year.
