  • Education

    YearQualificationWhere
    2018No formal Training Course completedNo formal Institution attended

    Additional Skills

    Second Soprano in Ladies choir The Gibside Singers, Trained in Improvised Comedy for 2 years and performed live with Newcastle based troupe 'On The Spot' for 1.5 years. Hosting and acting in virtual events on Zoom.

    Additional Information

    I sit on the Board of Directors for The Customs House, South Shields having being given the opportunity to develop my acting there in numerous community productions since 2002. I was invited to be a trustee following completion of my MA in Cultural and Creative Industries Management (Commendation) in 2018.

    About me

    Actor, presenter, singer and performer, I commenced my career as a writer and performance poet and this evolved dramatically over the last 15 years into theatre and singing performances, drama facilitation, voiceover and communication skills training. I am Event Lead for a North East team of Murder Mystery players called Tall Tales Mysteries, combining script and improvisation for a truly memorable event! Most recently this has been to international, corporate, public and private audiences via Zoom. I am constantly seeking to expand my portfolio with stretching roles and collaborations and welcome the opportunity to do so both virtually and on location. I wish to develop a showreel with more TV and film experiences.
