About me

I've worked as a performer for 35 years, with variety of experience. Specialising in physical theatre, I also have an extensive knowledge of the use of puppets and masks in performance.
Although known for my comedic roles in theatre I have recently been exploring more dramatic roles. Known for my vocal dexterity I have recently started working with the Games Workshop on their audio book series.

Additional Information

I have a good ear for accents and voices and have a large vocal range of 2 and a half octaves. I also have experience of improvising and devising. I have ran thousands of master classes for children and adults on the use of masks and puppets in performance. Fully DBS checked and Equity member since 1984

Additional Skills

Drive, swim, cycle, workshop facilitator - arts and craft projects, mask and puppet making
