I am a singer, actor, comedian and filmmaker brought up in London and The Scilly Isles.
It was my time spent on this rugged archipelago off Land’s End that inspired a love of the sea, adventuring, characters and
story- telling. Music and performance played a large part in my childhood. My father made me dance regularly to ‘Staying Alive’ by The Bee Gees which didn’t help my dancing career but did 'fan the fire' to sing and act.
After graduating from The Guildford School of Acting, I landed my first major job in Arthur Miller’s play,
‘Death Of a Salesman.' This led to a range of television, film and theatre work - interspersed with nautical travels and a spell as a sailor!
I worked for seven years as a performance reviewer for the National Council Of Drama Training ( NCDT), taught drama to secondary school students, adapted and directed plays and adjudicated scholarships. I have a degree in Media Studies and Sign Language Stage 2.
I wanted to add to my core skills so I co- founded a comedy club called ‘A cheeky Night in’ predominantly to give a platform to my own work and test out new writing. This intimate venture was popular on the circuit, attracting guest appearances from Gina Yashere, Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding (The Mighty Boosh). Since then I have created a distinctive brew of singing and comedy, which has led to a series of gigs and the development of my own writing and film making projects.
