Actor / Writer / Creative Doer
I’m about making things with a process that’s open and honest. With kindness, compassion and empathy.
It’s important for me to champion using our voices for activism. The LGBTQIA+ community have me as a cheerleader.
As does nature, the climate crisis and human rights.
When making work I want to be present and not stressed. Being in the moment yet mindful of everybody's needs that I am working with, without sacrificing any of my own.
Trying to always be as conscious as possible in my decisions in both work and life because life imitates art and I want my work to have awareness.
It must also have fears, tears, joy and laughter… lots of laughter!
From slight chuckles to belly laughs, all are welcome and encouraged.
Most importantly as a solo artist, it hasn't been a solo journey getting here. We have help along the way, lots of it.
Therefore, I’m also about paying it forward.
If I can help, I will.
Though I shan't be taken the piss out of.
Cheers, thanks a lot.
