2021 all wrapped up: the highlights!

I have been lucky to have had an exceptionally busy year, working professionally in all areas of the industry. Let's take a look...

  • Got new headshots from Samuel Black, which you can view here

  • Gained new representation with Roberts and Day Management.


Summer
