Favourite thing about being in Bright Sparks: My favourite thing about being in Bright Sparks is meeting very talented individuals and being able to work with industry professionals and specialists in our chosen capacity.

Favourite director: My favourite director without a doubt is Danny Boyle. He’s done very inspirational work and I’ve learnt a lot from his films, my favourite of his to date is tied between ‘Trainspotting’ and ‘Trance’.


Favourite food: I’m going to have to be a stereotypical northerner here and say pies. You just can’t beat a good meat and onion pie!

Guilty Pleasure: chocolate, most definitely!


First music you ever bought: Well, I distinctly remember buying my first two CDs, and they were Gareth Gates’ album after he won ‘Pop Idol’ and a Busted Album. I was completely obsessed with both of these, I still have the posters!

Cats or dogs: Cats are cute for sure, but I’m going to have to say dogs as I have my own golden retriever called Sandy.

What would your superpower be? I’d definitely have telekinesis (moving objects without touching them). It’s be great to have in everyday use!
