    Additional Skills

    I am a freelance drama workshop leader, working with all age ranges, primarily primary and high school children and teenagers. I use my skills in drama to help the children/teenagers creatively explore all different topics.

    I am self-trained in puppetry and can use a whole range of voices to bring different puppets to life. I worked with puppets a lot for a TIE tour in 2013.

    I am a visual artist, working with a whole range of mediums such as paint, collage, drawing, sculpture and inks.

    I can play basic guitar and bongos, and piano to a medium standard.

    I can also act in mime, using a whole range of facial expressions.

    I have been a private tutor of English. I have also led informal education workshops for a company called Streetwise, exploring personal safety, using drama, movement and art to engage children and teenagers.

    About me

    I am a passionate, well-rounded performer, with specific skills in acting, improvisational comedic theatre, and singing. I put my all into every performance I give, truly working to understand and empathise with whatever character I am playing and seeing the world through their eyes. Equally important is my focus on listening to the other actors' characters I am acting with, to understand their role in position to the character I am playing, and how we work together to build a cohesive, emotive piece.
