    About me

    I have always been a creative person with acting in some form always part of my life. My professional life took a different line for a time; one of finance. A varied career, I believe that being part of a team has greatly benefited work in theatre, television and film. I spent three years as Presenter on Business Week for TVTV. I lived in Europe for a while returning to the UK in 2008. Since then I have moved toward my passion for acting through training and gaining experience. I have been able to work on some exceptional projects, from local charity work fund raising to national events. I want of build on my experience to further my acting in all areas. I am flexible and enjoy challenge and am an active member of a Performing Arts Society.
