I trained at Central School of Speech and Drama in London and then worked for three years with the David Glass Ensemble, touring all over the world and developing my physical/ visual theatre skills. I have gone on to work in a great variety of productions in theatre, TV, film and radio, from period drama to TV soaps, from Shakespeare to storytelling shows. I have worked a lot with improvisation – performing for both theatre and film without a script, and have also developed scripts through improvisation.
I love working with my voice – singing, radio, voiceovers. I have written and performed songs, recorded vocals for Max Richter on his album “ Three Worlds, Music From Woolf Works” and “Memory House”, recorded traditional stories for audio such as this Selkie Story, and I sing every week in a choir.
