I had never really considered myself an actor. Storytelling is as far as my performance skills went. My time at the Academy at Falmouth University has widened my aspirations to include acting. In our final year, we were given the opportunity to a reduced rate headshot done by a professional photographer. At first I wasn’t interested but then I was encouraged by friends & a senior lecturer that my disfigurement was a unique selling point, the photographer also commented on this & said I had a striking face.
Similarly, my dancing has never really graduated beyond being a raver & going clubbing, but in 2016 I partnered up with a trained Tantric practitioner to co-facilitate dance workshops, For these workshops I designed soundscapes & also used my self-taught skills with Adobe Premier Pro, to edit a film promoting the workshops.
