I am used to addressing a lot of people as my day job was a teacher Until I took early retirement July 2920. I am confident and uninhibited in front of an audience or camera. I am versatile, a quick learner and would like experience of as many different projects and genres as possible so that I can progress my career. On the amateur stage I have enjoyed playing principal roles including playing the landlady and the other 6 female parts in "TWO" by Jim Cartwright and in March 2018 I played Maggie Thatcher in "Handbagged " by Moira Buffini. I am currently ( Jan 2020) playing the lead in my 10th play IRON by Rona Munro. I have trained at the Jim Cartwright Drama Studio, ActUpNorth and the Actors Lab. I have worked from scripts and written and performed monologues. I have also done lots of improvising and have performed monologues, set scripts and improvised duologues in front of the camera. I have attended various weekend courses and workshops with MAP. Through joining StarNow in July 2017, I have enjoyed the experience of modelling , and taking part in several short films and promotional and corporate videos.
I can do various accents including RP, Cheshire, Manchester, Yorkshire, Liverpool, Glaswegian ( check out the mixed voices audio) and have been cast in several voice overs and radio plays.. For some I have played up to 3 different characters in the same film / radio play utilising my different accents and voices. I have always lived in Manchester but my Glasgow accent is particularly convincing - helped I imagine by having parents from there.
I am also an accomplished violinist and lead 2 local orchestra. I have played the onstage fiddler in Fiddler on the Roof and a gypsy violinist in a pantomime. I was pleased to have the opportunity to play my violin in addition to acting in a short film about Mata Hari Summer 2017. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=zrwFpnFfWkk&feature=youtu.be
I took part in my first pop video with the MonaLisa Twins in May 2018 https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QsiKXfFkRoA

I am an accomplished violinist/ violist and have had the opportunity of playing my violin in various short films that I have also been acting in. In 2017 I was the onstage nun and offscreen violinist in a short film about Mata Hari (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3ZeMf0p2hdU) I took part in my first pop video with The Mona Lisa Twins in May 2018 https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QsiKXfFkRoA in which I played viola. In August 2018 I was the onscreen journalist in Mother and the offscreen fiddler in another scene. https://youtu.be/C1GWxYnlR-M and https://youtu.be/_TUsReGVOws.
I have played with my string quartet for 20+ years. We play at weddings and corporate and charity events. I have led several amateur orchestras as guest leader and was principal leader with the GPO 1994-2004. I have also formed 2 semi professional orchestras in 2004, the Amaretti Chamber Orchestra and the Athenean Ensemble. I lead them both both and fix the players. This clip is from a concert in 2018 https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=xvFITUhmfFo Bottesini duo Amaretti
I have also been the onstage fiddler in a production of Fiddler on the Roof and a gypsy violinist in a pantomime.
Although I don't play the piano very much any more, I am still competent and got to grade 7 when I was 14.
I can sing in tune preferably as a backing singer or choir member.

I believe I have the skills to be a good presenter as I have worked as a teacher for many years so have plenty of experience addressing groups of people - both children and parents. In addition, I regularly address audience groups at my orchestral concerts. I played the parts of mother and off screen news presenter VO in A rainy day https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8TTd9xnlY9Y. I have twice played the part of narrator presenting information in radio plays including https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ROMp8H-iJrI I am confident and relaxed in front of an audience or camera and would welcome any presenting opportunities.
