Proudest moment in your career?
Going from knowing nothing about stage management to stage managing an entire two hour production within the space of three months - and falling in love with the artistry too!
Quote to live by in your industry?
"Creativity takes courage.” - Henry Matisse
Five things we need to know about you?
I entered into the arts industry by accident! A mix up of my-A Level courses landed me in a Drama classroom for the first time... and I fell in love with the theatre!
My aim in life is to help people in any way possible - mainly kids and teens, perhaps using drama therapy in the future.
I have had a long time fascination with drones and love the way in which they are used in various production spheres within the arts.
I live my life by three rules I have learnt from my experience in the theatre: always be more kinder to others than needed, seek discomfort and work your hardest in anything you do.
I firmly believe that theatre in education is one of the strongest pillars that can be used to teach empathy, emotional intelligence and the essence of collaboration.
