And we can't wait to see how her one woman show progresses. I'm sure she'll be back on our social media soon!

Thanks for hanging out with us ###

Thanks for having me (.davy) for the today! It's a bonkers industry that we're all a part of and it's been nice to take some time out to document just a few bits of what I've got going on.
I wouldn't be doing any of what I'm doing now without Stephanie Morgan and Adam Stadius. I'm hugely grateful to both of them for their training and support.
Looking forward to seeing who's next on the takeover! ๐Ÿ˜Š
