I have always had an interest in acting and took part in a community production in the early '80's after leaving school, where I had auditioned and won the lead role. In the 1990's, I co-presented 'Music Makers', an educational music programme which explained the logistics of the Jazz rhythm to young children. I spent a lot of time in front of the cameras and also learnt lines for the programme. In 2006, I attended Identity Drama School for two months and took part in a production at the Arcola Theatre called 'Torn', which was collectively written by myself and all the actors involved. I also attended a short acting course at the City Lit thereafter, and am currently very interested in Extra's parts and also Voice-over work.

I worked with Female vocal group, Eternal and worked on T.V. shows with them including Blue Peter, Top Of The Pops, Pebble Mill.. I was also the drummer for the all-girl house band on the Channel Five, Club Class Comedy with presenter, Richard Blackwood. I have also worked on two cruise liners, holding down the showband drummer chair. I am very versatile in my styles and also sing very well. I am looking for any group who have regular work. I am interested in funk and groove bands in particular, but am very flexible.
