    About me

    I have extensive comedy and improvisation experience, which means I can deal with almost anything and I regularly teach improv comedy. I am a member of the Midlands' only improvised musical group, Rhymes Against Humanity. I also have a great facility for accents and character voices. This allows me to play a wide range of character types, often within the same production, which I love.

    I am frequently cast as mothers, nurses, care workers and professionals, but would love to play villains. I would also like to branch out into TV and commercials and perform in more films.
