Since becoming an artist what has been your most memorable moment so far?
There are so many, but I have particularly enjoyed the performance side of it all! Just the simple fact that I get to do what I love – my ‘Prisoner of Hope’ EP launch event being a great example!
2017 has been a busy year for you, along with being a singer you also travel all over the country singing with ‘Whitney Queen Of The Night’ how do you manage it all?
I guess it’s all time management and prioritising.
I like to write things down & create my to-do lists.
I’m not perfect at it, but I find as long as I’m looking after my health and wellbeing (mind, body and soul) the rest tends to follow.
Being in the show is very hard work and demanding but I also get a fair amount of time off, which allows me to focus on different things.

What is success to you?
Success is achieving the goals you set out to achieve, no matter how big or small. If my goal is to make people smile and go home from a show lifted in spirit, then I have succeeded. Or if I set out to release an EP and go through all the challenges of putting an EP together, I feel I have succeeded. Or simply doing what I love, full time is success to me!
