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!
Writing, theatre, film, photography, teaching, growing food, gardening, taking care of dogs, I can cook, do basic building work, love painting (walls, not canvasses), reading with children and getting them involved in creative work.
If there is anything you aren't sure about or need to know, do give me a call. Thank you.
