I'm an Actress. I studied Theatre Studies at school & college and have an A-level in Drama.

I've been a member of Theatre Groups all my life and appeared on stage in many different plays and musicals... including The Sound of Music, Oklahoma, Annie, The Diary of Anne Frank, Hard Times, The Tempest.
I've written and starred in a Pantomime which toured Junior Schools.

I'm good at memorising scripts quickly and have versatile vocal skills.
I have experience as a Presenter & Voice Over Artist.
I have experience as a film & TV extra.

For the last 3 years I have worked as a Role Player / Actor for the BBC, Channel 4 News & ITN on the 'Hostile Environment' course which takes place in a secret location in the woods. Basically there is a 'fake war zone' built in the woods which has the purpose of training journalists who are going into real war zones, putting them in potential real life scenarios. I play roles including - A war victim crying over the graves of my dead family who have been killed in a bomb blast, a rape victim traumatised and beaten by soldiers, a car crash victim, An ex - government communications spy / whistle blower and being blown up by fake bombs / a suicide bomber. We have realistic fake wounds with fake blood and sometimes a pumping wound (catastrophic bleed) which is operated by a hand pump. The journalists then have to perform Triage First Aid on us.
I've had Very Positive Feedback from members of the BBC news team & BBC Safety in regards to my Quote - *** "Excellent Acting Skills" *** "Very Convincing Acting" ***

I was recently an Extra on the Brighton based TV police drama 'Cuffs'
