I am a film writer/playwright and actor based in Leeds, UK. I have taken my three hander (A FEyre Tale) to the Ed Fringe and am currently pitching a science fiction feature and rom com to producers and directors. Would love to get back into Theatre. Making steps towards producing my first short film after the Covid-19 restrictions end.
As an actor, I would be well cast as gritty characters with a lot of struggles, quirky, vengeful, or vulnerable characters. Good as the mother/nurse/girl next door/inspector. I have played varying roles from Dogberry from Much Ado About Nothing to a scene as Marlene from top girls. please see my spotlight page for other credits.
Unique traits: Writes films/ plays with intriguing inter-relational dynamics, with themes of social justice and revealing the plight of those who have endured more than their fair share of the storms of life, lightened with hope, beauty and or humour. As an actor, can play Quirky, caring and gentle, vindictive, comic, vulnerable, and vengeful.
