About me

I am a friendly, hardworking actress, and director/producer based in Torbay, South Devon, but willing to travel.

Most of my performance experience is "on the job", since the mid 1990s, both as a performer, and 10 years of also running my own theatre & film company - and subsequently working on starting several peripheral performance projects.
This experience impressed the University of Exeter to the point that I was able to jump subjects and train as a theatre / drama teacher (PGCE and Masters). I now work casually as a secondary school supply teacher (of drama and Humanities) in order to subsidise my performance career.

Additional Information

Most of my performance background is in theatre, however I have film, TV, and "showteam" experience as well. I have a huge amount of energy and ambition, and am dedicated to a career in acting and performance.
