What are you known for professionally? Until recently, I’ve been a professional student at Kingston University in London, developing my passion for acting and directing theatre productions! I’ve done my share of bar work to pay the bills, but my heart is in the creative industries and I’m pleased to find myself in the Nakama team building a career in creative recruitment.

What’s the coolest thing you’ve done while being in your city? Considering the top things to do in the Wirral are ‘bird-watching, folk music and walking’, I’m looking forward to doing much cooler things now that I’m living back in London! I’ll be exploring Soho and the West End checking out some theatre, and getting back into my own productions outside of work.

Crisps/plums/singing in the shower or anywhere.
