Biography

I currently direct Aproxima Arts. Before that, I ran NVA, specialising in staging unusual events in unusual places. I was in this role for 25 years. We took thousands of people up mountains, down gorges and on choreographed runs in light suits all over the world!
Closer to home, I started the Beltane Fire Festival in Edinburgh over 30 years ago. I love working with people and finding ways to create powerful ritual moments with depth and compassion. 
There is no greater honour than to help someone mark the life of family or a friend with a fitting celebration or to help a couple share their marriage, with all those they care for, in their own way. 
Becoming a celebrant gives me the privilege, to help make ceremonies that truly capture the spirit and character of a much- loved person or the expression of love between two people and the wider world.
