Producer, director and performer

I’m a producer, director and performer because…

I’m passionate about all stages of the production process and about improving access for the Deaf community.

I run my own production company and I’m involved in inclusive theatre workshops and performances that improve access for Deaf people.

I’m profoundly deaf and a BSL user. I use a BSL interpreter through the Access to Work scheme and also use SignVideo – a video relay service using iPad, mobile or laptop to communicate with businesses and service providers.

Recently I was named in Bristol’s 100 Most Influential Black and Minority Ethnic People, out of 500 people in Bristol. I was so honoured to hear this fantastic news.
