    Additional Skills

    I have a background in dance (specialising in Ballroom and Latin) and have performed on TV, the West End, and film, as well as performing in 3 of the London 2012 Olympic/Paralympic ceremonies.

    About me

    After graduating with a degree in Microbiology and qualifying as a science teacher I made the decision to pursue a career in theatre.

    Since then I have taken on a variety of roles in theatre and film, including large projects such as the incredible 14-18 NOW/National Theatre project, we're here because we're here.

    I am the founder and Artistic Director of Front of House Theatre Company, which is made up of members who work Front of House at the National Theatre. We have performed at the Royal Shakespeare Company's outdoor festival in Stratford Upon Avon as well as working in conjunction with other large organisations such as the National Trust and the Royal Air Force Museum to create immersive theatre. We also produce an annual showcase of new writing that shows off the wealth of talent in our company.
