Every experience is a potential life lesson.
Even if you don't appreciate it at the time.
Each struggle in the present is preparing you
for something else in the future.

This is me
Here you will find all things 'Connor' related... from my Acting work, to my writing material, to photos from previous productions to a blog.
Brief history... I was born and raised in Newport. I went to university to study Acting in 2010. Graduated with a BA Honours degree in 2013 and over the last few years I have had the privilege as a performer of working with some of the best people in the industry at some of the top companies.

Having discovered a passion for writing a few years ago when I wrote for an event called 'Stories of the Streetz' I haven't looked back since!
I have been absolutely blessed to have been invited onto the Welsh Royal Court Writers Group and the BBC Welsh Voices Writers Group where I've learnt and developed even more and wrote a hell of a lot more.
I'm also super lucky to have the award-winning Kelly Jones and Bryony Kimmings as mentors and all round supportive QUEENS!
During which time I'm slowly but surely building and developing my writing and my talent.

I've started a blog where I write about my experiences and life lessons in the hope that it may offer a reader some hope, guidance, laughter or a combination of all.
