Hello, and welcome to my website
Truth as a creative artist is the most important thread. I love my craft and am dedicated to always seeing more and being more.
Truth is the sound.

My love for acting was founded aged 16 when I joined the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain, I went onto study at Wimbledon School of Art as a Theatre designer before doing many courses in theatre, acting and dance.
I have had parts in Deep State 2, The Beast (London Film School) and a commercial for Hilary Blinds to name a few.
In 2008 I was nominated for an EMMA Award (*Ethnic multicultural media award) and have gone onto performing stand up at UK festivals, conferences, after dinner speaking engagements, business meetings, charity events, award ceremonies and of course around the UK comedy circuit. I have over 15 years of professional experience.
I have done shows at the London Hilton with Claudia Winkleman, Tate Britain for the Young Achievers Award for Westminster City Council, RBS Bank, Bond Dickinson, Metropolitan Police, Diocese of Leicester and many universities such as Nottingham Trent, Preston, Goldsmiths and Grimsby to name a few.
I am featured in Steve Best’s new book featuring the top current UK Comedians. Currently I've been doing shows online due to Covid.
Social commentary work is important to me along with most comedians, I cover race, women's and adoption stories in the news especially, along with fun stories about dogs etc! I've worked on the Nick Ferrari Show, LBC with Iain Dale, BBC Radio London 94.9FM with Eddie Nestor and BBC World Service to name a few.
September has seen the launch of the National #YouCanAdopt Campaign, I am honoured to have written and presented the poem featured. This campaign runs from now until the end of National Adoption Week on 17th October and Black History month. Please do contact me or my agent for any media engagements.
Being adopted has given me a voice and passion to engage with others about this complex topic. In October I join a panel on the BBC Africa's Podcast 'The Comb' with Kim Chakanetsa discussing overseas adoption, complexity and my story.
For Adoption Today magazine October issue I have an article about transracial adoption and BAME families.
Currently, I have written a seminar that I present called 'Beyond Black Lives Matter and Adoption'
Do please contact me directly for more information.
