  • My status


  • Description

    Hi there, I'm Daniel and I'm originally from England.
    I am a writer, teacher and also work in film and theatre. Once upon a time I used to manage charity projects, with a focus on refugees, mental health and conflict resolution and much of that experience still colours my creative work. I have recently finished a book for children and am currently working on a novel for adults, which I hope to finish in 2020. In film and theatre I like collaborating with communities and have produced work in Britain, Austria and Germany and with refugees from a number of nations. In 2020 I will be travelling to a number of new places with the intention of collaborating with more communities to create theatre work. I am particularly interested in collaborating in Poland and Ukraine.
    I am a CELTA qualified English teacher and have taught in six countries. I am always happy to help people improve their English as I travel. I am also interested in permaculture and eco-building - and have a lot to learn in that regard - and like to plant things and fix things up. I did a six week course in organic agriculture in England and have worked on a farm in Cyprus. I also love to paint - every year I paint my mother's house and fences and even once helped to paint a refugee camp.
    I also have a real passion to be fluent in Russian (at the moment I am at a very basic level) so if anyone could help me with that along the way I'd be really grateful.
    I hope we'll find some way to collaborate!
    In peace,
