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

I’m a dancer with Northern Ballet. We take class/ train everyday and then rehearse after unless it’s a double show day. I was lucky enough to be chosen to work with Chance to Dance.

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

On my bike or listening to music or chilling with my girl.

What are you most looking forward to about Cinderella?

Seeing the circus skills come together.

Which is your favourite Northern Ballet production and why?

A Midsummer Night's Dream because watching it from an audience's perspective it is a real visual spectacle and it's also a wonderful production to dance.

If you weren’t a Dancer what would you be?

Something involving music or cycling or both.

Who would play you in a film of your life?

People have said I look like Reggie Watts, so perhaps him, but I wouldn’t mind Denzel Washington or Christopher Walken if they are free.

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

If you’re going to do something, make sure you do it properly.

Be humble.

What song will always get you dancing?

Anything good really but most Michael Jackson tunes suffice.

What scares you?

Spiders.

What would be your Mastermind specialist subject?

Films.

What do you want to do before you die?

Explore more of the world (on a bike).

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

  • Bob Marley
  • Rudolf Nuryev
  • William Braunstein
  • Felipe Andres Coronel
  • Richard Pryor
  • Bruce Lee

Describe yourself in three words?

Loyal, curious and passionate.
