Wild Things has been at the centre of my life since 2008, when it began as a school drama club, involving my own (then very young) children. Since those early days, it has become a family of its own, with hundreds of young people taking part in classes, workshops and activities over the years.
I’ve always been adamant that all young people should have access to the performing arts and that every young person, no matter what their background, ability or experience, has their own individual brilliance and can bring something to a group that nobody else can. And I know that this can only happen with an active focus on inclusion. Excitingly, Wild Things became a not-for-profit Community Interest Company in June 2020, and I’m even more determined to drive our social mission forward.
I manage a team of highly skilled performing arts coaches, each professional performers in their own right, and all equally passionate about the use of performing arts as a tool for social development.
I trained and work as a professional actor, alongside my role as Chief Executive
