    I can drive and have my own car.

    Short description of my voice

    I have a natural, clear, deep voice that is extremely versatile giving me the ability to sound young (child-like) or old.

    My vast range of accents are consistent and contrasting.

    After a highly successful run of the eponymous role of 'Stevie' in Hugh Whitemore's play at The Yvonne Arnaud Mill Studio in Guildford, and an award winning performance at The Old Red Lion Theatre in Islington as the Mother in 'Sea Fret' by Tallulah Brown, I am currently touring my own one-person play 'TIMELINE' performing over 28 different characters.
