Allix was born and raised in London, UK. He trained at Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art before working as an actor for five years. He has worked in a number of plays, all over the UK, as well as making appearances in some TV and films – his favourite screen appearance being in a film that he had written for the Film Four shorts. He took a break from the world of acting to travel all over the world. His travels brought him to Cambodia where he helped to set up a drama programme for a charity assisting orphanage schools. The programme was aimed at helping the children with their confidence and communication skills. It was a success and Allix is proud to say that it is still running today. It was here that he developed a passion to get children interested in the arts.

After living for nearly a year in Cambodia he returned to the UK where he made a career change, working for the Refugee services of the British Red Cross. This led him to complete a Masters in Humanitarian Action at Uppsala University. After graduating Allix worked in Myanmar and Jordan before realizing that the world of drama, theatre and performance was calling him back. He has now worked as a drama pedagogue for a number of years as well as becoming a playwright. Two of his plays have now been produced in London; one of which is being transferred to Brighton Fringe this year.

Allix currently lives in Nordend and, when not working as a drama pedagogue and teacher, is playing the part of Zed in The Little Red Dragon at the English Theatre Frankfurt.

Allix passionately believes that children should be allowed to embrace the arts and have a space in which they can truly understand their full potential.
