    About me

    In 2016 I was accepted to study at The University of Salford, on their Media and Performance BAHon and loved every minute of it, including the more challenging aspects, such as, self-reflection and internalisation. As a result of hard work and determination I graduated with a 1st class honours. Being the first member of my direct family to complete a degree, I was extremely proud of myself, as were my family and friends.

    In addition to the course work, I was keen to work on as many other independent productions as my spare time would allow. I subsequently had over 30 credits during the 2nd and 3rd years, as I felt it important to work with as many different creators, writers and directors as possible, from as many different backgrounds and experience levels as possible too.

    Since graduation my time has been split between continuing to work on my acting career and paying the bills.
