    About me

    I am an actress with a disability from the North West as well as having a base down in London. Since completing my degree from DeMontfort University seven years ago I have continued my training by partaking in workshops with my casting agency Lakeside Castings as well as Jamie Lomas Associates and more recently Inspire actors studio where I have had the opportunity to work with industry professionals from Film Casting Director Alice Searby, Emmerdale Casting Director Faye Styring to Directors Mickey Jones and BAFTA Award Winning David Blair. over the years I've had the privilege to work with theatre companies whether in performances or workshops such as Maison Foo, Small Nose, Storytree and Word for Word theatre. Most recently I have been involved with DANC MANC which is the Disabled Artists Networking Community ran and created by Triple C in Manchester. With my training and continuation of wanting to know more, I am able to throw myself into more challenging roles and using my style of performance to stage and screen. I'm also proud of my disability and the way that I look because of the condition as well as it makes me more unique to being a performer.
