My love for the arts and in particular the theatre was ignited the first time I saw The Phantom of the Opera in London. I remember sitting on the edge of my seat totally captured by the music, drama, acting and story that was unfolding on stage. Since then I have tried to see as many new, old and classic musicals and plays that I can.

I wanted to be part of the festival as I believe it is a great way of bringing people together, whether through watching the performances or through volunteering everyone gets something from the experience.

I work in Soho editing films and I am curently working on The Dark Crystal: Series 1 and before that I worked on Bohemian Rhapsody.So far, I have been making all the promotional videos that you see in our social media. 

I am very excited to be a part of the incredible marketing team for the Wells Theatre Festival and work with them in getting the community and wider public involved with the different performances and be a part of this wonderful festival!
