    About me

    I attend a regular improv. group [weekly training sessions plus weekend workshops]. The skills I learn and practice are invaluable for screen and theatre work as well as for role playing and performance comedy.

    I am active in the Central England Equity group. I organised a fund raising event in 2013 for members and colleagues along the lines of a 'monologue slam' style evening which was great fun and well attended.

    I completed a 10 week [30 hours]'screen acting' course led by Louise Osbourne in December 2011 practising my skills for film and advertising roles.

    I have had a professional interest in training, facilitating and group work, am a qualified counsellor and supervisor and worked with families, young people and adults in education and mental health fields prior to becoming a professional actor.
