I live by the sea near my hometown Portsmouth – the UK’s only island city! (That makes it sound way better than it really is.)
Although originally destined for the stage, I decided against going to drama school. I ended up spending a long period as a carer for a family member, which is when I started writing and studying photography.
I have degrees from Durham University and the Open University, passed the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) exam in Reporting, and gained the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) Certificate in Photography.
Bringing a character to life through the lens gives my inner actress a chance to shine!
