I'm a writer and actor with an interest in physical and verbatim theatre. I studied creative writing at The University of East Anglia, acting at The Royal Central School of Speech & Drama and physical theatre with Frantic Assembly. I'm also a trustee for Told By An Idiot. Subjects which interest me include: social isolation, the abuse of power, exploitation, the law, communications, commuting and bureaucracy.

Plays include: Late Bus (Camden Peoples Theatre and UEA Studio), Carwash - It's Not My Name (The Space) and The Call (in development while at the Royal Court).

Poetry includes: Cycle long-listed for the National Poetry Prize, An Old Friend selected for the Canberra University VC's poetry anthology.

Poetry for Children includes: Daddy's Shoes shortlisted and published in the the Plough Prize anthology and more recently published in The Caterpillar. Monkey Business and Pockets have also been shortlisted for the Plough Prize.

Film: Borgia's Kitchen was runner up in the English National Opera trailer competition judged by film director Mike Figgis.

My first degree was in French and German; I'm still fascinated by language and culture and have travelled widely in Europe, Asia and North America.Oh and I have a parallel life as a business woman which pays the bills.
