 I am a professional actor with over 15 years experience working across theatre, film and TV. Since graduating from Bretton Hall with BA (Hons) in Drama, I have performed at venues such as York Theatre Royal and West Yorkshire Playhouse and can currently be seen in Sci-fi series Chronicles of Syntax. I have written, acted and directed for arts events such Development Lab, Light Night and Emerge festival as a solo performer and though collaborations with other artists. I used to be a competitive synchronised swimmer for over six years and part of the Sussex County championship team. I wanted to combine my love for synchronised swimming and performance, and this was a catalyst for YLA.

In addition, I am the project manager for Leeds Waterfront Festival.


I create dances and choreography for and with people. I graduated from Northern School of Contemporary Dance in 1993. Since then I have mostly worked collaboratively with dance and people in Yorkshire. My main inspiration and motivation is people: and finding unusual and delightful ways to make  things up together. I have worked with a range of people: this includes young, early years, and older people; those living with dementia; adults and children with and without disabilities; all people. I currently collaborate on Tea and Tolerance, Small World (I-move Arts) Raised (Yorkshire Dance). Lucy and I have co- managed produced and directed Yorkshire Life Aquatic since 2013.
