After working with young people for over 15 years as an actor, arts charity volunteer, drama coach and creative support teacher at Griffin Schools Trust, I have a unique perspective on young people’s experiences of the arts and how the arts influences, supports and encourages their drive and access to learning.

I graduated from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, but have mainly spent my time concentrating my efforts on playing fun cheeky heroic characters who  possess unknown strength, or who obtain a magical flying vehicles or attempt track down and rescue missing animals. My personal hero’s include all those who make us laugh, clap, cheer and dance a little. Including but not limited to Olaf, Spider-Man, Kermit the frog, the Chuckle Brothers, Lionel Messi, Mr Tumble, Usain Bolt, Paul Zerdin, my Mum, Willy Wonka, Maya Angelou, Dr Who, Stephen Hawkin, Harry Potter, and Chase from Paw Patrol.
