I am a 22 year old performer from Manchester; ambitious, incredibly inspired and extremely determined to find my own slice of success within the ruthless entertainment industry. My long standing passion for singing and performing is second to none, so it is my chief aim at the moment to work creatively on my music career, creating and recording my own album. Although this project is still in its infancy, I am hopeful and excited that it will lead somewhere positive. Aside from my ardent interest in singing/song-writing, I have a real love for acting on both stage and screen. Working at the 5* leisure club, 'David Lloyd' for five years has also provided me with a good work ethic and I feel that I am a pleasant person to work with. I treat everything that I pursue with a great amount of integrity, keeping a positive and professional attitude. Ultimately, I wish to be a working professional within the entertainment industry, enjoying what I do, seeking every success along the way!

I think that I have a classy and original tone to my voice, or so I have been told, and this is best suited to soul and jazz songs.
My voice is powerful, fresh and very easy on the ear.
Through experimenting with my voice and the help of vocal tutor lessons, I have also developed a strong falsetto and a range from d#3 - c6.
