Since I was young, I have had a strong passion for theatre & the arts. I participated in many workshops, dramas, theatres, and youth clubs, as well as the annual summer Sadlers Wells Green Candle for the deaf. My family introduced me to Stagetext, with the first show I saw being Fiddler on the Roof at the Crucible. Since then, I have never gone to a show without captions.
Being profoundly deaf since the age of two and using a cochlear Implant, I communicate through both speech and sign language. Graduating from Reading University with a degree in Theatre Arts, Education & Deaf Studies. I progressed my career as an actor with my first stage debut at Nottingham Playhouse in collaboration with Ramps on the Moon. Since then, I have trained as a Trainee Assistant Stage Manager on the national tour of Tommy, worked front of house, storyteller, workshop facilitator, and educator. I also love going to the theatre as an audience member!
Without Stagetext, I would not have had the same level of access to the career that I love.
