Where is your home away from home?
Anywhere high up. I love being close to the sky, roof top bars, hills with a view, anywhere. Might be a height thing… who knows…
What have been your career highlights so far?
Working on the Windrush Films & Event was the most exciting and wholesome experience I’ve had in theatre. Being able to welcome and celebrate the Windrush generation in a building that is typically seen as not accessible to them was incredibly fun. Also Black Apron Ent. are a phenomenal film production company to work with!
