I've loved the theatre from a young age, especially the villains, but being artistic myself what always interested me the most was the special effects and set design. I originally joined the Phoenix Players as a special effects make-up artist for Alice in Wonderland in 2016 but since then I have designed sets for them, performed with them and made all sorts of weird and wonderful props for them. I love working with the Phoenix and they have given me the confidence to branch out to other areas of the performing arts. Which has lead me into scare acting, independent horror films and set designing for other local theatres.
