I remind people of all ages how to see the magical in the mundane.
For over a decade, I have been teaching creativity to everyone from CEOs to seven year olds. My expertise lies in awakening the imagination, creating new connections and accessing the possibility of wonder.
My work as a celebrant allows me to bring creativity together with ceremony, helping others to celebrate the transitions in all our lives, be they weddings, funerals or other thresholds that demand a ritual to honour their passing.
I got into Oxford University to read English literature at the age of 16 and have studied everything from poetry to playwork and showmanship to shamanism, exploring a wide variety of personal development techniques and learning that many different paths lead to the same mountain top.
I founded a successful not-for-profit in 2005 called Eyeshine, devoted to reconnecting parents and children through playing in nature, which was awarded £238,000 from the BIG Lottery in 2008. I still teach individuals and organisations how to play, get creative and shift their perspective so that they see the world afresh. I have delivered bespoke trainings for companies as diverse as Lush, Panasonic and The Museum of London and am a cultural analyst, specialising in future trends and innovation. In 2012, I co-produced an immersive theatre production in San Francisco that was covered by the New York Times, and which is coming to London in 2016.
I am currently writing a book about how to create relevant rituals in the 21st century, collating powerful stories of how we as humans cope with the big transitions of life, love and death.
