My passion for theater and "play" started at a very early age. I used to write and direct comedy pieces when I was at primary school. As a small ensemble we would perform to our classmates and teachers every week. I loved sharing my observations through play, and with friends who loved to play. Throughout time, I took roles in four theater productions, and performed around fifty times.
