I studied acting while training at the R.S.A.M.D. and have built on what I learned when working in opera, musicals and TV. Clearly the acting techniques differ depending on the genre.
All my acting and singing experience is listed on my profile.
Dialects fascinate me and I am able to deliver speech in Geordie (which is my home dialect), Glaswegian, Brummie, Welsh, Irish, Yorkshire and West Country although I can speak RP when necessary.

Influences: Neil Sedaka, Carpenters, Renee Fleming, Anna Netrebko, Agnes Baltsa

I have over 30 years experience in professional music and I can offer a variety of singing styles which include opera, musicals, oratorio, folk and sacred.
I am classically trained to a high standard without amplification and therefore am able to project my voice over an orchestra.
I am also familiar with singing with the use of microphones when being accompanied by electronic instruments.
I play piano to a reasonable standard and am self taught on guitar which I use when accompanying myself when singing folk songs.
While at the R.S.A.M.D. I studied German and Italian and can already speak French. I have many years experience of singing in all three languages.

TV & Reality

I’ve been a contestant on “Catchphrase”, in which I won a holiday and cash prize, “Crosswits” , getting into the final but not managing to complete the final crossword, and “ The Weakest Link”, when I got to the last three.
