Charlie has been a professional actor and theatre director in the UK (Equity member) and NZ. Other work has been in education, health, research and social service sectors - especially with Deaf people. He has a Masters in Arts Education and Cultural Studies combined with management roles in various arts organisations. Coming to NZ over 20 years ago, he feels lucky to have ended up living on the island most of the last 10 years. He has been involved and seen Artworks evolve through that time - occasionally performing at the theatre but also volunteering. “Having been part of a programming group several years ago I am loving the ever growing diversity and quality of shows on offer both from residents and touring groups.
