An interview with a camera in your face can be intimidating and make you feel self-conscious, which I definitely was at first. But that changed after a couple ground-breaking sessions with Barbara May.

Barbara is the person who helped me the most to improve my comedy delivery on stage. In this competitive field she could have let me flounder. Instead, she lifted me up!
