I am part of award-winning improv comedy company The Maydays. I attended their beginners course in 2005 and landed up joining the troupe! In 2008 I attended the iO Chicago 5 Week Summer Intensive to learn advanced longform improvisation.
In 2011 I returned to my native South Africa where I co-founded Improv Cape Town and later formed The Long Shots improv comedy troupe. I also established The Extra Butter Improv Jam a monthly variety performance night. I developed and taught the improvisation skills syllabus at Act Cape Town film school, and in 2016 I helped organise and perform in the inaugural Mama City Improv Festival.
I returned to England in 2016 and am now the artistic director of Improv Gym.
How can I help?
Organisations all over the world are starting to appreciate the value improvisation skills can have in the work place. These skills are not just for performers, they can also be used in life and the corporate environment.
I also have experience using forum theatre helping with influence and conflict negotiation management skills.
I am able to facilitate training sessions to help with, unlocking creativity, improving listening, building confidence, collaborating, agile thinking, communication.
