I have worked from 2001 till 2010 as a Freelance Prop Maker, Scenic Painter and as a Set Dresser on a variety of projects in London.

I studied BA Fine Art and Sculpture in Leipzig (Germany) and in Bristol (UK).

I completed my MA in Advanced Theatre Practice specialising in Puppetry and Prop Making at Central School of Speech and Drama in London.

I have been employed on several shows at the Little Angel Theatre in London and had a successful working relationship with its former Director, Christopher Leith.

I performed at the Vision Festival for Puppets in 2002 in Brighton.

I designed and produced all the puppets and stage sets for puppet shows which I presented in 2003 and 2008, including the Stoke Newington Mid-Summer Festival, the Camden Arts Festival and the Shambala and Glastonbury Festivals.

I worked and taught at the National Youth Theatre, London in the 2005 and 2006 summer seasons. A highlight of the season was the making of six-meter high puppets for a performance in Trafalgar Square on the 10th September 2006.

Since 2011 I have been working on 2D animation projects and Illustrations for short stories.
