Born with mild hearing loss, I grew up in Wales and have worked in hospitality for over 20 years here and abroad. I studied Art as a mature student and run art and craft workshops for community groups. I worked for 10 years as Advisor for RCT Deaf Job Club supporting deaf and hard of hearing to access college courses, voluntary and paid work. I enjoy art and craft markets and supporting hard of hearing to attend access events. Now I wear two hearing aids and live in London with my son.
