Conor is a practitioner, actor, director and storyteller with 15 years’ experience in the field of theatre and education. He studied Drama and Theatre at Royal Holloway then went to Drama Centre London for actor training. 


What started out as his ‘other job’, running workshops at Shakespeare’s Globe, quickly grew into a passion and a career. Over 13 years at the Globe, working as an education practitioner and learning consultant, he led workshops with thousands of children between the ages of 4 and 18, ran professional development for teachers, trained other practitioners and headed up various projects ranging from literacy modules for Early Years to summer schools for budding professional actors.

 

He has worked in Switzerland, the USA and China. 
He moved back to France, where he grew up, in 2019 and alongside freelance work in international schools, he now runs several weekly English-speaking drama clubs. He speaks fluent native French, conversational Spanish and lives in the Paris area with his wife and three daughters.  

 

Conor has worked with Tom on countless projects over the years. In October 2022 he will be leading training and
workshops in Santa Barbara, CA for Bright Torches.
