    About me

    I am a first class graduate achieving a BA honors in Theatre Studies (Drama, Theatre and Performance) from the Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts at Lancaster University. I have also completed a Post-graduate Diploma in Further and Post-compulsory Education (PGDE) specialising in Drama and Acting. Furthermore, I am currently studying for an MA in Musical Theatre.

    Currently, I am looking to further pursue a career in screen and stage as well as theatre in education. I have always been interested in acting, recently attending lessons with Act Up North and, prior to this, performing for the Young Everyman and Playhouse in Liverpool during my teenage years and working for a number of months with CBBC. There is something endlessly exciting and rewarding about challenging yourself to jump into somebody else's shoes. I am also a creative individual with a particular interest in Film/TV and Theatre as art forms as well as simply popular entertainment.

    I am also trained in singing and musical theatre performance achieving a Grade 6 in Musical Theatre from the University of West London and training in dance from a young age achieving a Gold Bar II specifically in Scottish country dance and undertaking and choreographing modern and contemporary dance at degree level. In addition to this, I am currently studying for an MA in Musical Theatre to gain a further qualification in this area. Currently, I am in the process of writing and directing a number of musical theatre works and so I am also practiced in lyric writing, composing and directing.

    Furthermore, I have achieved a Distinction level Post-graduate Diploma in Further Education (specialising in Drama and Acting) gaining experience in working with young people to create performance work.

    I am always inspired to bring energy and passion to my work and approach all challenges head on. I am incredibly keen to get involved in any opportunity that I am presented with and bring elements of originality and individual creativity to my work.
