    About me

    I am an engaging and hardworking presenter, television producer and actress.

    PRESENTING: I presented radio shows for BBC Sussex, student radio and Future Radio for 8 years. I'm now moving into screen/television presenting, was recently hired as the presenter for a training/marketing web series for One Globe Studio, and I'm now in talks about a potential Netflix series. As I am also a professional Television Producer (with credits including BBC, Sky & Channel 4), my deeper understanding of what's needed is always greatly appreciated. I'm comfortable and experienced with autocue and very good at taking direction. I'm keen to grow my experience and am enthusiastic and adaptable.

    TELEVISION PRODUCING: I am an award-nominated television producer, having produced many major and primetime series for BBC 1, Sky, Channel 4 and more over the last 9 years. However I'm scaling this work back as I'm scaling up my focus on presenting, but I'm taking a lot of valuable knowledge and experience of working with crews/TV setups with me from this role.

    SCREEN ACTING: I have played the lead in several independent series and films (which have shown on Latest TV and at screenings), and supporting roles in professional films and series - one of which has just been released on Amazon Prime (June 2020).

    STAGE ACTING: I acted for stage from childhood through to a couple of years ago, including playing Angelo in Measure for Measure and being in several award-winning plays in Brighton Fringe Festival.

    VOICE-OVER: I won an SRA Award in 2006 for a collection of Idents I had V/O'ed. I also undertook official voice-over training with JP Orr at The Showreel in 2015, and my 8 years of radio experience and lifetime of acting stands me in good stead for more VO roles.
