What do you do?
Performer, writer and advocate for all things silly.

What do you like about theatre?
It brings out the best in people - when it's good, it's magic!

What is your favourite moment working with StrikeUp so far?
Funnily enough, a lockdown-era Zoom workshop! Experiencing the resilience of the StrikeUp community, and the love and creativity they continued to pour into their work amidst such a draining time. Their short films were excellent and full of imagination! 

Which show/artist/moment has influenced your work? 
Michaela Coel - a beautifully uncompromising artist and an unapologetically honest storyteller.

If you could be someone else for a day, who would you be and why?
Adele - she has a beautiful house... i'd belt songs in it all day long.
