I'm Alex Fradera, a scientist and artist who is interested in the stories we tell.
I'm an experienced psychologist with a background in academic and medical fields, who works with organisations and individuals as well as in public communication of science.
I'm also a performer and director of improvisational theatre, who works with children and adults, professionals as well as those looking to show a different side of themselves.
Combining insights from these different fields is what I do, through writing, teaching, advising and play. These have led into what I loosely define as two areas of practice.
Being someone is something we're always doing, but sometimes we want to find different ways of doing it.
Breathing life into things is how we give a project, idea or organisation spirit and energy.
In the past this had led me to get involved in diverse projects: some commercial, some artistic, some community. See some of these here, and get in touch if you are curious, or want to invite me into something new. This might be as a one-on-one advisor, to design ways of understanding people capability, or enlivening a community through play. Or, more likely, for something unique to you.
My writing is spread across a number of places, on- and offline. I’ve mapped this out here.
