I write and I perform. My work, which is about and from the body, explores the thrill and wonder of eroticism, discovering, through the physicality of movement and the repetitive storytelling that ultimately, what we want is to want.It combines fictional and autobiographical narratives with coarse imagery in order to explore the solitude of desiring and the enigmatic nature of wanting. 

I create and write on performances that use repetition as a structural and expressive means, interested in the repetition of performance in memory; I have presented my work in conferences (Performance Studies International 13, New York, Repeat Repeat, Chester University, Live Performance Practice as Research, Royal Holloway, London) and various UK venues (V&A, The Basement, Whitechapel Gallery, Camden People's Theatre, Arnolfini, Bristol, East End Collaborations). 

I have studied Theatre and Performance in Greece and the UK and have finished my doctoral research project at Queen Mary University of London. I have taught as a Visiting Lecturer for the MA Dance Theatre: The Body in Performance and have been the course leader of BA in Performing Arts at the University of Bedfordshire and worked at Anglia Ruskin University as a Senior Lecturer in Drama. I am currently a Teaching Fellow in Theatre and Performance Studies at Queen Mary University of London.
