Years: 1963-1968


Memories of School:
  • Founder of Geological Club

    Having left 'Patch', I was sent to the UK to Christchurch College, Canterbury where I qualified as a teacher, then up to London where I taught in Brixton for a year. Meanwhile, the call of the greasepaint grabbed me and I started doing a cabaret act which for the next 13 years saw me travelling the world. Eventually living out of a suitcase didn't suit me so returned to the UK.

    Went to work in a couture house as a machinist and from there progressed to a designer. In 1998 I started working as a designer at the Royal Opera House in London for 2 seasons, then went freelance. I worked in Glyndebourne and the Metropole in New York for Kiri Te Kanawa. I followed this up with private commissions for various pop groups and fashion houses. Eventually landed a place as wardrobe master for Midsomer Murders for 3 years on TV before giving all up to live in Malta, where I design various productions and films.

    I am currently working on the new Sheakespeare production and the Panto for this year. If anybody wants to contact me then please do so. So much water under the bridge.
