In a nutshell describe your job and how you got into it?
I got into dance by pure chance; I actually thought I was going to be a footballer or a martial arts expert. A typical day at work starts with training in the morning (ballet class) followed by rehearsal and then, depending on where we are, either a show or more rehearsals.
Where can you be found when you're not at Northern Ballet?
In the bath at home reading a book or listening to music – my favourite past time!
Which is your favourite Northern Ballet production and why?
Too many to chose from and I like to think the next one will be the best.
