In the summer of 1997, I attended the IFTR
Conference in Cholula, Puebla, Mexico. The hospitality was amazing and it was
an outstanding meeting. The after-conference tour to Mexico City was great fun.

In 2000, I visited Ashland, Oregon and The
Oregon Shakespeare Festival and attended the ATHE
meeting in Washington (where I made a presentation on the cult theatre of the
Kabeirion). Later, I attended the Frank Matcham conference at the Gaiety
Theatre in Douglas on the Isle of Man, the IFTR
meeting in Lyon and the SIBMAS
meeting in Paris.
In 2001 I traveled to Krakow, Stratford-upon-Avon, and Sydney, Australia for
the IFTR meeting and in 2002 I attended
the IFTR meeting in Amsterdam. In 2003 I visited Jaipur for the IFTR meeting
and the International Conference on Scenography in Prague.
Next year I hope to attend the IFTR meeting in St. Petersburg.
I like boats
and boating and I'd like to retire on a Narrowboat but I'm not quite ready
to take the plunge. The picture shows narrowboats moored along the Paddington
Canal in London's Little Venice.
Interests: I also like seeing plays, photography,
and collecting clocks and masks. I have taken almost all of the photographs
on these pages.
