    Additional Skills

    I am also a professional Voice, Speech, Accent and Dialogue Coach and have worked as a Voice and Accent/Dialect Coach on many stage and theatrical shows (e.g. Our Country's Good, Liverpool Empire and King Cotton, The Lowry), TV programmes, as well as workshops and private coaching.

    Full clean drivers licence.

    Additional Information

    I am an American/British professionally trained actor, presenter & voiceover artist. My training includes a post graduate Masters degree from The Royal Central School of Speech & Drama & a three year professional actor training programme at The North Cheshire Theatre School.

    My playing age is between 25 - 36 years. I am equally comfortable with classical text as I am contemporary having had both classical and contemporary training.

    I am highly skilled at accents and dialects and regularly play roles with accents different to my own. My native accent is a standard neutral English accent, however I am also very comfortable at a natural American accent and regularly play roles requiring one.

    I've had professional presenter training (Glenn Kinsey, Pozitiv Productions)and am fully trained in autocue/teleprompter. I have a wealth of experience in green screen, outside broadcasts, corporates and commercials.

    About me

    A 2016 BAFTA Los Angeles Newcomer for Emerging Talent, I can be seen in independent feature film "Freesia", in the featured role of Sally Thornton. Freesia has made official selection at multiple international film festivals including Miami International and London International.

    Seen on "The Sarah Millican Television Programme" as Guest Voice Coach/Actor flexing my voice coaching, acting and comedy muscles along side Sarah Millican and Gabriella Ellis (Made in Chelsea).

    I play the featured role of "Keira Healy" in the British feature film "27, Memory Lane" written & directed by Luke Hupton, Lupton Films Ltd.
