Hi and thanks for stopping by my website! So here is a little about me...
It all started when I was just 10 years old when I began my training as an actor at the Italia Conti Stage School and I have been working in TV, film and commercials ever since (and love every minute of it!). As well as working as an actor and presenter, I am also a trained make-up/hair artist and beauty therapist and over recent years I have had several opportunities to combine my on screen experience with my skills in the beauty industry.
There are some jobs that stand out more than others during my career, and there are two that immediately spring to mind; The Fake Blood 'I Think I Like It' music video, which was hysterical to make, in which I play a crazed shopping channel presenter performing a frantic make-over, and I'll never forget the time on the Channel 4 hidden camera series 'Shop Secrets Tricks of the Trade', that I had to slap customers around the face and tell them it was good for their skin!
As an actor and presenter I have worked on so many commercials, corporate videos and advertising photo campaigns that I have to say I have lost count, but here are a few that spring to mind as I type... Hewlett Packard, Fanta, Dairy Crest, Golden Churn, The Sun, Eurostar, British Rail, Furnitureland, Tesco, Mercedes, Virgin, Allay, Haywards pickles, Panasonic, DFS, LG, Not on the High Street and Orange. Of all the commercials I have appeared in, the one I was most excited to work on was the BBC2 Christmas continuity ident of 1998! I was a drunk fairy that got taken away in a champagne bubble!
As a beauty expert I have been found guest presenting beauty segments on some of the UK's favourite shopping channels as well as having the incredible opportunity of going undercover for Channel 4 in the hidden camera show 'Shop Secrets Tricks of the Trade'. I have also worked as a spokesperson for brands such as Rimmel, NYX and Makebelieve.
If that wasn't enough, I got the bug for writing and producing, and I decided my first project was to be my own comedy sketch show. It was great fun to work on and for my first attempt at writing/producing I am very proud of the results. Its titled 'Three Men & A Lady' and you can find out more about this project by clicking here. I enjoyed this taster of writing so much that I have since found myself writing a sit-com based around my weird experiences from working in the beauty industry. I have really loved this process and am so proud of the finished script (which I am currently pitching, so watch this space!).
So I think this little biog will have given you more of an insight into my varied working life and I look forward to continuing my career as an actor, presenter and on screen beauty expert.
Thanks for reading!
