« At the age of 4 my daughter suffered allergies and eczema, and used to get agitated and be very apprehensive. After starting Speech and Drama, she is very confident, never shy to ask anything in class or at home, can approach her peers with ease, start a conversation readily, make new friends quickly. She excelled in her confidence and skills and was chosen for voiceover: animation and radio. She can interpret the text, read and speak as if the scene is happening in front of you. »

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

A full-time freelancer since 2008, I left copywriting for Telegraph Media Group to produce and direct Terry Pratchett's Night Watch for Macmillan Cancer Support, in memory of a fellow member of the Questors Youth Theatre where I went on to become senior tutor. I have taught, written and directed ever since, and still act when time and interesting stories come up (I am a member of Spotlight and Starnow). I run Green Ink Writers' Gym ((concealed information) based at Waterstones, Piccadilly and Olympic Studios, Barnes.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I am currently taking a PhD in Creative Writing with the University of Hull (associate student: University of Roehampton).

LSDE (LAMDA Diploma of Speech and Drama Education), LAMDA
MA, Creative Writing, Bath Spa University
BA, English Literature, Roehampton University

I also studied directing at the City Lit and acting at Kingston College/The Questors Theatre.

- Do you belong to any professional organisations?

Directory of LAMDA Teachers; Voice, the teachers' union; Spotlight; Starnow.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I am proudest of those who thought themselves 'too shy', 'too late', or 'not good enough' and achieve results that let them see themselves differently - for good.

A new actor who speaks English as a second language improved his focus, emotional commitment, and diction in both languages and was accepted to drama school. A primary school pupil who struggled with audibility and eye contact when she arrived and achieved a distinction in her first LAMDA Exam a term later. Two teenage acting students are already pursuing successful careers as voiceover artists.

I lead workshops for published and unpublished writers across the genres, helping them gain space and confidence to create new work.

At the age of 4 my daughter suffered allergies and eczema, and used to get agitated and be very apprehensive. After starting Speech and Drama, she is very confident, never shy to ask anything in class or at home, can approach her peers with ease, start a conversation readily, make new friends quickly. She excelled in her confidence and skills and was chosen for voiceover: animation and radio. She can interpret the text, read and speak as if the scene is happening in front of you.

Thank you so much for today's writing workshop. I thought it was excellent - incredibly helpful. The exercise was brilliant! When leading a group, you did the job of a good leader; you held the space really well, kept calm when there was any hint of over-dominance from one or other person, stuck with your programme.
