Highlights of my career

Being part of the Radio 4 comedy drama, 'Almost like being in Love' in April 2017.

Taking my first ever solo show, 'Made in Cumbria' to Edinburgh Fringe 2016 and performing in Anna Morris' award winning show, 'It's got to be perfect' throughout the fringe.

Getting to the Funny Women Award Finals and Brighton Comedy Festival Squawker Awards 2015. Getting nominated for the Brighton Fringe 2016 Comedy Award and Audience Choice Award.

Last year I worked on a fantastic radio play called, 'Don't worry: It's only the End of the World" written by Alfie Shaw. The radio play episodes are all now available on iTunes. The radio play has already had thousands of downloads and has been in the top 10 on the Comedy Chart on iTunes

Throughout the Brighton Fringe Festival 2014 I performed for the award winning White Room Theatre's 'Bite Size Plays' productions at The Latest Music Bar. For my work in the Brighton Fringe 2014 I was nominated for the Latest Awards 'Best Female Performer Award' 2014.

I was also delighted to be asked to do two live readings for Colin Hoult's new material nights as he worked on the second series of 'Carnival of Monsters' for Radio 4 in 2014. The live readings took place at The Old Market Theatre in Brighton and included guest readers Jo Neary and Phil Lucas.
