Writer / Performer
I trained as a *normal Actress at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and since graduating have been lucky enough to work for numerous theatre companies including; The National Theatre, National Theatre of Scotland, Polka, Soho Theatre and Birmingham Rep to select a few. I’ve performed in Number 1 Tours, Rep, in the West End and even in a fringe theatre alongside Prunella Scales. On screen I’ve played a wrestler, a terrified weather reporter, a geeky book lover, a youthful teacher, and a gangster librarian in a fat suit. It’s been eclectic.
Alongside all this, I write and make my own work. For many years now I’ve been performing character stand up/sketch and have taken 5 of my own character comedy shows to the Edinburgh Fringe to great reviews and an even greater bank balance. LOL.
As an improviser, I have been a member of Showstopper! The Improvised Musical for seven years which has enabled me to combine my love of comedy, acting and collaboration all in one insane, Olivier Award Winning show.
Although I do a lot of comedy & improvisation I still love **normal acting. So I guess what I’m saying is if you need someone to be in your edgy short film/production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream I’m on it, but equally if you need someone to be Andy Warhol coming out of a can of soup for your comedy night then I’m your woman.
*Is there such a thing?
**no but seriously what is that?
