I have never received formal training as an actor but acquired my considerable knowledge, skills and technique from years of involvement within professional theatre. As I child, I performed as a singer/actor with the Royal Opera Company and post University I worked as a social worker/drama therapist before moving into Theatre-in-Education and this was followed by gaining work in mainstream commercial theatre in musicals and plays both on national tours and in London's west end.
