Personal Description:

I have over ten years experience training professional actors within the Drama UK conservatoire system. I can prepare and advise students interested in taking this pathway. I can help the non-actor with transferable skills such as pubic speaking and presentation.

After training at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, I performed in regional, touring and West End theatre and appeared on screen in single dramas, series and presented children’s television.

I have written scripts for community, education, business training and children’s theatre with numerous scripts broadcast on BBC, Scottish TV and Channel 5. I successfully completed an MA in Screenwriting at The University of the Arts in 2010.

My directing experience encompasses classical, contemporary, educational, devised and pantomime, for companies in Britain and aboard.

Having taught and directed in a freelance capacity at various drama schools I became Head of Acting at ALRA (Academy of Live and Recorded Arts) in London in 2004, becoming Co-Director of the school four years later. Whilst there I completed a PGCE at the Institute of Education and was instrumental in transferring the Acting Diploma courses to BA (Hons) and MA programmes validated by St Mary’s University Twickenham. With my Co-Director I founded ALRA North in Wigan for which the school won a TMA nomination for services to regional theatre and The Stage 100 Award for school of the year.

I am a trustee of Yellow Earth Theatre Company and Dark Horse Theatre Company.

In 2014 I resumed my freelance career in acting, writing and directing.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to empower you, the learner, by helping you to understand and overcome the obstacles in your way. Learning is about doing, putting into practice, not simply receiving. You need to be clear on the aims and objectives of the session at all times and to be able to evaluate your achievement at the end of the session. Although hard work, learning should be fun and engaging and the responsibility for this lies **Web Address Removed**, the tutor.
