34 Highburgh Road, GLASGOW, G12 9EF, United Kingdom
I have an eclectic background as a professional actor, corporate communications advisor, European network and project manager, and trainee psychotherapist. Throughout, my evolving career has been sustained by a passionate curiosity and interest in the dynamics of human communication, interaction and relationships, and how people make sense of their experience of forming and being formed by the families, cities, organisations and cultures of which they are a part.
