    Additional Skills

    As a qualified teacher of English I have an excellent understanding of drama, Shakespeare, etc,. I enjoy textual analysis and debate, and have a love of literature and theatre.

    (Please note, I selected 'intermediate' combat skills, mostly due to my training in Kickboxing).

    Additional Information

    A former original member of both The Style Council and The Brand New Heavies, I am currently performing in the band, ‘From The Style Council’.

    About me

    I am returning to acting after spending many years as one of Britain's top session singers, followed by a career as a lecturer in Media and Film and a teacher of English Language & Literature. I say 'return', but in fact I never left. Acting, writing, dramaturgy, producing and creativity in general has never left me, so in effect I am 'coming home'.

    I am both Black Theatre Co-op and Afrosax Drama Company alumna, and more recently a student at Identity School of Acting (IDSA). I have a particular love for the classics, Shakespeare in particular. I am currently without acting representation, but regardless of this, have some amazing projects in the pipeline. I am now looking to build my CV and be a productive and versatile actress.

    I would also like to state that I am incredibly hard working and focussed. Using some method and the rest, innate ability, I give more than 100% to every role to bring out the best in both character and production.

    This is my life.

    It's what I love to do, and what I wish to give back to the universe.
