I am a professionally trained actress and qualified acting teacher. I teach LAMDA and coach students for drama school both children and adults. I love teaching as much as acting. I continue to act professionally to hone my skills. I also teach English at GCSE/A'levels and have been doing this for 10 years. I started 5D theatre company and have performed new plays at Brighton Festival and elsewhere. I have devised my own workshops for all areas - fun, educational, self-development and corporate.

I have been working as a professional actress since 1985 after leaving Mountview Theatre School. My experience covers all genres of acting. I have recently filmed a Cannes Film Festival short film. I am presently in a web drama series called 'The Glue'. I play a character called Eva Green. You can visit to see the trailer of this. I am also in a theatre production of 'Vita and Virginia',playing Virginia Woolf, which has been touring this year. For the Iambic Arts Theatre the production won The Argus Angel Award at the Brighton Festival 2012. It will be performed at The Pentameters Theatre, Hampstead in September 2012.
