Additional Skills

Working in theatre, film and radio for many years has put me in contact with and given me experience of a multitude of differing cultures, ethos, time and financial considerations.
Coupled with a BA (Hons) degree in European Policy with a year living and working in France, those experiences have honed my flexibility and adaptability when in front of the mic. Seeing things from the client's point of view is essential to a great working relationship and whether working to a tight deadline or budget, the quality of the work is paramount.
