Meet the Studio Team

Head of Operations & Director of Marketing, Graphic & Web Designer

Christina McMahon

Christina is from Mayo and the great puppeteer of the studio's Creative Hub. Creating a space for actors to share ideas on projects they wish to write, produce, direct and be in. This Creative Hub is a rich resource for the actors creative process at the moment where seeds are planted and nurtured to grow by fellow actors. For the first three years of the studios inception Christina was the invisible genius behind the scenes.  She steered the ship through the seas of marketing, online courses and social media. She is a gifted VO actress, comic actress and moves as only a comedian can in her own unique and stylish way from one role to the next.

Studio Administrator

Rachel Defontes

Rachel is from Orange County , California. Now living in London and working as an actress. At the studio Rachel beavers steadfastly behind the scenes organising our storyboards for our social media. That is then translated into images by Gian, our graphic designer. She mindfully edits each page, chapter and book of our content into a library of integrated images for storytelling. This storytelling reflects the nature of the fiercely gentle and empowering work of transformation and evolution that emerges from  the co -creations between Helena, her clients, actors and teachers at the studio. These co-creations later become words, quotes and stories. We are delighted to have Rachel and her unique perspective on our team. 

Art Design Consultant

Gianluca Tettamanti

Gianluca is from Como, Italy. He is a graphic designer, an artist, a lover of books, music and the natural world. He has a rare sensitivity that translates the work at the studio into images that have a life in and of themselves. These images tell a story, the story of what it is to experience the work rather than merely portray it.
