    About me

    I am an actor and theatre maker with puppetry skills and an annually updated DBS certificate. I have created numerous fun and exciting characters for children's shows, competently engaging babies, toddlers and people of all ages with my interactive and playful approach, adapting my energy as appropriate. I am co-founder of Boo To A Goose Theatre, touring Devon twice a year with original work (with support from Arts Council England). I am also one half of Box of Frogs, continuing to experiment with and perform grotesque comedy sketches.

    In addition, I am an Associate Actor/Artist with Interwoven Productions CiC, providing site specific performances; I just love to connect with and surprise audiences with authentic characters and performances. As a corporate role play actor, I have participated in CSA GP Medical Role Play as well as performing in Murder Mystery Events.

    I am a mature woman, strong in character and comedic acting and skilful in engaging live audiences.
