    About me

    I had not acted since school plays until I accidentally auditioned for a role while intending to paint the scenery. That was at Macclesfield Little Theatre ten years ago. Since then I have appeared in over two dozen productions for MADS, and also performed for companies based in Congleton, Stockport, Buxton and Wilmslow. Roles have ranged from broad farce to the lead role in Shakespeare's "Winters Tale" at Buxton Opera House. I have acted in intimate studios, and open air theatre at Gawsworth Hall. I have increased my activity in recent years and have representation with PHA agency.
