    Additional Information

    I have extensive skills in role playing, mainly in the field of Law and Medicine.

    I also have experience of workshopping and role playing ( often historical characters )with school groups (primary, Year 1 - Year 7) at Museums, having worked in many of the major Museums in London ( Natural History / Science / Greenwich Maritime / Docklands / Museum of London / London Transport Museum ). In addition I have worked at Kew Gardens, ZSL London and Whipsnade.

    About me

    After I graduated I completed an Actor training course in London and began testing my skills out in theatre, film and television. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, finding my strengths in live performance lay in character roles largely, although I found myself able to be very flexible in all areas of casting. Working regularly, and with commitment, I built up a repertoire of performances from classic to contemporary, mainly in theatre. I would now like to develop my skills in film and television.
