About me:

I am currently a member of the Director's Cut Theatre Company and am performing in their virtual end of term showcase in a scene that was written by Carol Cooper on Thursday 13th August - she has also asked me to work on the whole one woman play by the writer in September. I have found this group brilliant for keeping creative and collaborating with other actors, directors and writers during lockdown to learn and experiment performing on Zoom which I really enjoy!

I have also been lead singer/lyricist in a band performing covers and own material -
