Graduated from Laine Theatre Arts.
As a performer I spent 8 years appearing in various UK tours including ‘42nd Street‘ and ‘Anything Goes‘ where I also took on the role of dance captain.
After several years touring the UK in musical productions I moved to Paris where I spent 6 years dancing at the world famous ‘Moulin Rouge‘ and ‘Lido de Paris” . The experience I gained I incorporate into productions to create unique vibrant choreography that connects with an audience and generates unforgettable performances.
Over the past ten years I have choreographed for the Thursford Christmas Spectacular which involves a cast of 120 performers including a 30 piece orchestra. It is one of the largest shows of it’s kind in Europe, viewed by well over 120 000 people every season and regularly sells out a 2 month annual run.

I was part of the team responsible for the inaugural shows on the Solstice class ships for Celebrity Cruises. This included the groundbreaking show ‘EDGE’ created on behalf of Poet Productions and Patrice Marques. Working with a budget of over 2 million dollars and a variety of cutting-edge aerial technology, the shows were performed in their purpose built venues for five years.
