He has been an invited lecturer at Greenwich University’s Creative Writing Department.

He has directed big scale outdoors and site specific performances with choirs, military bands and horses, outdoors community performances against discrimination for Thessaloniki European Youth Capital 2014, alongside with more “conventional” devised and physical theatre or dance work.
