I spent my working life in information technology in the banking sector, retiring in 2007. I always wanted to write.
In 2008 I wrote a short story about my parents, who lived in Edmonton and who became seriously disabled by Polio when they were young children. I entered this story into a competition run by the Millfield Theatre, and it was then dramatised by Face Front. Quite simply I became hooked on what Face Front does. It uses drama to engage with some of London's most disadvantaged citizens.
I am proud to support Face Front in every way I can. I am a member of the finance committee. I volunteer with "Broken Silence" - a drama group for people with learning disabilities, and also take photographs of many of Face Front's productions.

"Working with Face Front gave me the confidence to write my parents life story."
