Additional information

I worked for most of my professional life as an actor, director, theatre-maker, and lecturer after graduating from Dartington College Of Arts with BA (hons) Theatre in 1989.

I toured with Kneehigh Theatre for almost twenty years as actor, director, movement director, project lead, community artist.

I became a founder member of Wildworks, working extensively with the company between 2005 and 2011, co-creating a new language of acting specific to the Landscape Theatre form and conceiving, devising and producing new performance work in response to site in Cyprus, Malta, France and the UK. As a creative professional I have worked throughout the UK in small, mid and large scale, in ensemble, in repertory theatre. Alongside my performance work I’ve spent many years as a lecturer and subject lead in FE and HE.

I have always worked closely with people of all ages helping them to develop their skills, find their path in life and move towards fulfilling their cherished dreams and goals.

My professional voice journey started with the wonderful voice teacher Keith Yon at Dartington College Of Arts. He was an amazing man and an inspirational voice teacher. I have explored the subject of voice for many years, using a wide range of voice techniques, especially those developed by Kristin Linklater and Jo Estill.

I trained in Estill Voice levels 1&2 at the Royal Academy Of Music in June 2013 and continue in voice lessons with an Estill Mentor to further develop and challenge my knowledge and understanding in voice anatomy and vocal technique. I am currently working towards Estill Figures Proficiency (EFP) with  Estill Master Teacher Aimee Leonard. I have recently completed Estill levels 1&2 for a second time with EMCI and Speech Language Pathologist Tom Burke.

I work with clients across a wide range of vocal practice from singing skills to general vocal confidence. I am very experienced in gender affirming voice practice. I was awarded a DYCP (Develop Your Creative Practice) grant from the Arts Council to develop this work. I worked with an initial pilot group of people in 2022 and the work was very well received and highly effective. The ‘Find Your Voice’ project continues to support trans and non-binary people in their voice journey.

I work online via Zoom and am happy to work with people from all over the world.

I am also a qualified Hypnotherapist (HPD) and ‘CONTROL System’ Recommended Practitioner.
