Middlesbrough is my hometown in the North East of England. I graduated from Liverpool John Moore’s University with a First Class BA (Hons) Drama degree. During my time at University I spent my summers working in America and Italy, teaching Drama and Dance whilst also working as a Theatre Director.
I studied for a PGCE in Drama at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in London. I then returned to Liverpool and worked as a Drama teacher at a secondary school. I moved to Dubai after teaching Speech and Drama in Teesside, North Yorkshire, UK whilst also studying and qualifying for an MA in Educational Leadership and Management at Newcastle University.
