Having lived the life of a career performer for over 25 years, I know at first-hand the often unseen side of this profession. When people think of an actor or a performer, they often think of the fun and glamourous side of the job - getting to be spontaneous, to use your creativity, to entertain others and, in some cases, the social status that it can sometimes bring.

What those of us connected to the industry know only too well is how it can be tough to keep body and soul together. To cover the bills and stay alive. To be productive and supportive to our friends and families. All while juggling often many variables in our working lives - and all, preferably, while remaining a sane and put-together person.

That's where "The Performers' Backyard" comes from.

I have been lucky enough, throughout my career to have benefitted from the wisdom of countless performers and mentors and I want to do the same to help my colleagues.
Via fortnightly vlog videos, which I'm aiming at being approximately 20 mins in length, I hope to bring:
* Industry insights
* Practical tips on the nitty-gritty of stretching your budget creatively
* Collaborations and interviews with other performers on how life is for them on the coal-face
* Examinations and discussions of key current issues in the industry
* Technical and mechanical tips to help be the best performer you can be
* Ideas on how to achieve a work/life balance so you can maximise your enjoyment of this wonderful career
* Quarterly Concert Window performances featuring guests as well as myself.


Since I already know how it is to have very little and yet to want to support, I would like to encourage everyone not to give anything if you're short on resources for yourself. My aim is to pay forward the kindnesses done for me over the years, so just to know that my vlogs are out there, being enjoyed (and hopefully beneficial) to someone is enough for me.
However, if you are in a position to support the work of "The Performers' Backyard", then it will help me to increase and improve the work. For anyone who is interested in becoming my patron, I have some rewards for you to check out below.

Thank you so much for your time and support. It means the world to me.
