About this pro

I employ classical voice and acting techniques developed by Cicely Berry and Alexander. I have a BA Honours in Drama from Loughborough University and a Postgraduate Qualification from The Webber Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London England. I have been a long term Company Member of the Royal National Theatre London and have had extensive Principal acting roles in UK and USA Repertory and Television. I taught voice and audition technique at The Italia Conti Drama School and Mountview Theatre School in London.

I am a passionate, patient and empathetic tutor and my current students say I am inspirational. I enjoy developing talent and empowering students with the tools and skills to communicate their own unique story.
