After two incredible visits to Punchdrunk’s London-based immersive theatre spectacle The Drowned Man, I finally found myself in New York City to see their production of Sleep No More– a fully interactive interpretation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The entire experience is a fantastic whirlwind adventure into the secrets, betrayal, and ambition prevalent in Macbeth. You live […]
2012 was one of the more tricky years of my life, and I went into 2013 determined to just get better. I was struggling to walk in a cast and not able to work. It was a very trying start to the year. I don’t really do resolutions, but I aimed to improve on what I could. […]

Now as a personal rule, I do not purchase from UK Amazon for a variety of holier-than-thou reasons, and as a […]
Last year I made my own Christmas cards by hand and individually. It was an adventure I was able to undertake owing to my being off work with a busted foot, and an adventure I quickly realised I was *not* going to have time to replicate this year. This year I opted for handmade origins, […]
