BIO

Variety, they say, is the spice of life and during the course of three decades I have acquired a wealth of experience in many facets of health, dance, business and safety; as a dancer, producer, director, choreographer, audio & visual technician, teacher, blogger, podcaster, author, principal of Premier Studios training academy, a sport therapist, an IOSH occupational health and safety officer and an artistic director of Arts2u Theatre Company.

 

I enjoy working with individuals, communities and businesses in a creative process to reach a goal, regardless what industry.   

 

My services online are set up for like-minded people to access information to help themselves grow as a 'complete person'.  The Complete You is a process physically, emotionally and mentally that allows people I work with to reach their goal and be accountable in managing their current situation and future.

Business and project management is an asset for my work but there are more skills, knowledge and experience I’d love to share.
