I received a Just Creativity Award from the Arts Council 2013 for music workshops with Young Offenders in Grimsby for North East Lincolnshire Council and a Community Pioneers Award 2000 for Innovative Hip-hop workshops by HCC. In my youth I have travelled extensively up and down the country with my dance group performing gigs touring and entering competitions . I mentored the famous Grimsby actor Tommy Turgoose prior to him becoming a huge success. I choreographed dances with Hull’s Billy Elliot prior to touring with Elton John. Performed alongside No1 chart toppers DJ Pied Piper.
