    About me

    I am a Company Creative at emerging comedy theatre company Laughing Mirror, and have appeared in multiple shows with them. I graduated from UEA with a BA Hons degree in Drama where I performed in various plays and cabarets. I have also done role-play work with medical and social work students, and outreach work at Norwich Castle Museum. I specialise in Comedy and Musical Theatre, and I am looking to build on my experience in these areas while also expanding my repertoire in a professional environment.
