    Additional Skills

    I have often been asked to arrange period hairstyles for actors using their own hair or wigs, as I have some skill in this area

    Additional Information

    I have completed three years as a student at Carney Academy in Sheffield. Over this time I have had tuition in voice skills, improvisation, stage combat, and more recently screen acting, I have also attended a variety of workshops at the Crucible theatre Sheffield on voice and movement, led by Cicely Berry and Struan Leslie of the RSC.

    About me

    I am very passionate about my acting and being involved in professional film and theatre I always try to behave in a professional manner on all projects I have been involved with

    I am starting out professionally at a more mature age than many actors but this means I have many life experiences to bring to my work.

    I have had a career as a teacher which I believe has also given me experiences and skills to draw upon as an actor.

    While teaching I have had a long experience of unpaid acting work.
