I am co-founder of a theatre company called Kinkyfish (website http://www.Kinkyfish.co.uk). After a successful run in 2010 at the Edinburgh Fringe theatre we are proud to be returning to The Space Venue for Fringe 2016 with 2 exciting new plays. Both plays were performed in London in February 2013 at The London Theatre to sold out audiences.

I have taken on various roles from back stage, choreographer, to ensemble to the lead.

Most notably I have played Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors, Tallulah in Bugsy Malone and Lady Brockhurst in The Boyfriend.

I had a small part in a local TV programme when I was young and have also had various voiceover work with the local radio station, Northsound Radio back in Aberdeen.
