Modeling

I have modelled for a brides catalogue, I also model clothes, shoes and jewellery on live television for a shopping channel, and worked at London Fashion Week as a model for a fashion label.

TV & Reality

I currently work as a freelance co-presenter on Bid TV, Price-Drop TV and Speed Auction TV and have over 6,000 hours experience of live television. Some of the presenters I co-present with are Paul Ross, James Whale and Peter Simon. I am fully trained in talkback, autocue, live, pre-recorded, scripted and unscripted TV.

My job involves presenting the links in and out of adverts, reading out emails and chatting with the presenter about all kinds of stuff.

Music

Like to join a band: No
I’ve been singing since the age of 13, and have 5 years vocal training to my credit, being trained in both pop and musical theatre.

Growing up, I was always passionate about music and learned to play clarinet up to Grade 6, which consequently led to my ability to read music and play/sing by ear. I especially love harmonies, as I tend to hear them instantly and pick them up very easily.

At the age of 15 I began to write and record voiceovers and jingles for various BBC radio stations, including some for Steve Wright’s Sunday Love Songs on BBC Radio 2. My jingles are still played out on this radio show to this day.

After this, I spent some years singing with live bands – live performances include The Commercial Radio Nominations, along with Beth Rowley, The Commercial Radio Awards and performing on the main stage at Birmingham Pride earlier this year, shortly before Katrina and the Waves.

I continued to sing with bands until I was chosen to lead sing for a James Bond album, released in 2004 - “James Bond, The Essential Themes”. My vocal of Nobody Does It Better was chosen a few years later (2007) to be featured on another album “Simply Woman”, featuring artists such as Gloria Gaynor, Tina Turner and Billie Holiday – which I was very chuffed about!

In 2006 I recorded the soundtrack for the film “Stephen Burrow’s World”, a film about one of the “Sex and the City” designers, featuring Naomi Campbell. This was launched New York and was also bought by four U.S. TV channels.

Since then, I have recorded backing vocals for various artists and projects, the most recent being an X Factor contestant’s debut album, to be released in 2009..

I am very reliable and punctual, and am very easy to work with. I like to think I am fun but at the same time, disciplined and a perfectionist when in the studio. I have been told by various musical directors that I take direction very well and get vocals down very quickly in the studio.

Dancing

I have been dancing since the age of 2. I trained at The Lila Vincent School of Dance, and am trained in ballet, tap and street dance. I took many imperial ballet exams during this time and danced with Wayne Sleep.

Since then, I have choreographed various routines over the years. I also sing in a girl band and dancing is a huge part of our performance on stage.
