"I was fortunate enough to join Tomahawk theatre at a young age (Lennox, in their first production of Macbeth). At that time in my life I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, but the utter passion, dedication and joy with which this company began, and has continued, to produce such wonderful theatre, led me to want to do it for the rest of my life. Working with different texts, different people and in different spaces helped build my craft which I would later hone at drama school. Tomahawk is hugely responsible for my acting today."
