    About me

    Full-time professional, always well presented, highly organised and available at short notice. Experienced in a variety of roles with featured, walk on and speaking parts. I’ve completed numerous mature modelling assignments, achieving published model status within just 3 months of starting. I previously worked extensively in corporate business and I’m a former air hostess with excellent people skills. I’m well spoken, confident, intelligent and articulate with presentation skills gained in my earlier career. I'm able to drive anywhere within reason, have a valid DBS certificate and a full passport. Freelance and agency represented, I’m very easy to work with and look forward to meeting you!
