What are you passionate about?
All things theatre (writing, performing, watching, teaching), my cat Archie, reading, and embroidery. I realise that makes me sound way older than I am, and I’m cool with that.
What do you like to do when you’re not working?
Travelling as much as possible – I try and visit a different country every year if possible. I take part in local amateur theatre productions, and spend time with friends and family.
What’s it like working in the education/charity industry?
The best thing is working with other people who share the same purpose. We’re all here because we’re trying to make things better for disadvantaged young people, and we’re all driven by that.
What have been your work highlights from the past few weeks?
I recently worked on our first ever brand film, which was a challenge, but incredibly rewarding to see something you conceptualised brought to life.
What’s one unusual or interesting fact about you?
I was once on The Chase! Didn’t win any money, but it was an amazing experience.
Which of your role models would you most like to meet and why?
I really admire female comedians and writers, such as Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Emerald Fennel, who make real waves in their industries and translate stories in such a unique way.
