    About me

    After forty years as a journalist and later an academic (English Literature), I returned to the field to follow long-held ambitions. At 19 I played Kathy in Michael Weller's 'Cancer' at The Sherman Theatre in Cardiff (Cardiff University Drama Group) and although I was unable to train as an actor then, much of my working life has been performance-related. I have assumed a range of personas to relate more easily to people I've interviewed as a journalist and performed with energy as an academic, both in the classroom and at conferences. Since stepping down from academia, I've worked for several years as a National Trust Guide at Ham House in Richmond and also lead after-dark Ghost Tours for adults and storytelling sessions for children. Over the past three years I've immersed myself in training as an actor and although I'm relatively new to the business, I have much to offer; I can bring life experience, authenticity and immense enthusiasm to a role and work with dedication and humour, where appropriate. Now I'm looking to build on the skills gained from my theatre and film work.
