I first began working with young people through the arts when I got my first student teaching job at 16 years old. It was in this role at Northampton Music and Performing Arts Trust I found a love for working with young people. I went on to study Drama, Applied Theatre and Education at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. On completing my degree I started full time in a pupil referral unit in West London as a Learning Support Mentor. I then went on to work in a residential children’s home as a Key Worker to young people in the care system.
As a freelance Community Theatre Practitioner and project coordinator I have worked with the Tricycle Theatre, the Spitalfields Crypt Trust, Tender, Pan Arts and Phakama, to name a few. This has led me to working with many groups of adults and young people including those who are NEET, Looked after young people, homeless, recovering addicts and those with English as an Additional Language.
