Favourite piece of theatre?
One piece of theatre that has particularly stuck with me is; Frantic Assembly’s Beautiful Burnout, technically amazing and a really interesting, energetic performance.

Favourite Middle Child moment?
Weekend Rockstars! Lighting Design! It was so intense the creative team had to sit in sunglasses during the tech sessions to avoid being blinded!

Favourite writers?
Charlotte Bronte, Kate Long … JK Rowling.

Favourite album?
Florence & the Machines – Lungs

Favourite book?
JK Rowling – Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone

Favourite film?
Love Actually, my favorite annual christmas film, which I have to watch at least 20 times every year! (Don’t judge)

What do you love about Hull?
The first glimpse of the Humber Bridge when driving back into Hull.
The new and improved city centre and the culture 2017 has brought.

What else do you outside Middle Child?
I have a two-year-old son; so most of my free time is spent in a park, soft play area or The Deep Aquarium. We love days out and our family holidays.

​I also freelance in Production Management, Stage Management, Props Making & Lighting Design.
