Make an enquiry

I am a freelance tutor/ actor/ writer living in Hackney. I hold an enhanced CRB disclosure and have been teaching since 2005.

I am a member of the actors' cooperative agency Inspiration Management and the ensemble theatre company Real Circumstance AAG. When not teaching, acting or writing I enjoy reading for pleasure, swimming regularly and traveling whenever I can- including recent trips to Cuba and around Europe. I see fringe and West-End theatre as often as possible and also try to enrich my cultural diet through galleries, museums and independent cinema. I love a good live gig and have five Glastonbury Festivals, one Benicassim and one Field Day under my belt to date.
