    Additional Information

    Following a career in UK and international business, I've entered the acting profession later in life (it's something I've always wanted to do) and have taken my time to learn the craft (still learning obviously - the learning never stops). I'm really enthusiastic, committed, supportive and open to roles. My training, and experience to date, has been largely theatre based but I have some experience of working with the camera both from previous roles and also through training.

    About me

    - Royal Central School of Speech & Drama trained.

    - 2 years of training courses at RADA (evening classes) and various at The Actors Centre.

    - Voiceover trained including development of own characters.
