In a nutshell describe your job and how you got into it.

I am a professional dancer with Northern Ballet. I tour and perform ballets in and around the UK. It took me many years of hard work and training until I could audition and be accepted into the Company.

Where can you be found when you're not at Northern Ballet?

Probably in my flat, in the kitchen learning a new recipe. I enjoy cooking but I think I'm hopeless at it and I would not cook for other people. I'm shy.

Which is your favourite Northern Ballet production and why?

A Midsummer Night's Dream because it is full of humour and fun to be a part of.

If you weren't a dancer what would you be?

An actor.

Who would play you in a film of your life?

I wouldn't mind playing the character, I can't see anyone else nailing it!

What's the best advice you've ever been given?

Be yourself and be comfortable in your own shoes.

What song will always get you dancing?

Any song with a good beat.

What scares you?

Pirouettes!

What would be your Mastermind specialist subject?

Any general subject in entertainment.

What do you want to do before you die?

I want to travel and see the world with my soul mate.

It's your dream dinner party - which six people (dead or alive) would you invite?

I just want four - Michael Jackson, Nelson Mandela, Tyler Perry and Kourtney Kardshian.

Describe yourself in three words.

Passionate, ambitious, versatile.
