Over the last two decades I have had the lovely opportunity to work on television, on films which have been on Netflix, Amazon, Sky, and apple, and in cinemas. And I’ve successfully build a CV of credits in award-winning features, national and international campaigns (commercials), and on stage, while also having two babies, living through a pandemic and a million other obstacles, and dating an actor (well fiancé apparently). So I really mean it when I tell you ‘I get you!‘. I believe that we all get to be, do and create, anything we want for ourselves as long as we are willing to try (Yoda will tell you there’s no such thing as try!), and do.
I’ve also contributed to many of the biggest acting sites on the planet including writing for Backstage, Casting Networks, Spotlight, Acting4Camera, Verite Magazine (when it was in publication), and more.
I founded the UK Actors Tweetup (and the film festival TweetFest) in London over a decade ago and have interviewed casting directors, agents, award-winning directors, and producers, as well as teachers, and coaches from all over the world. I even founded the World Acting Summit many years ago which was one hell of a feat – a completely free global online television show that ran for two weeks with international industry professionals chatting each day.
Why do I tell you all this? Because I love to enthuse, guide and nurture actors in a business sense, and to help mentor them for success. (And even business professionals too).
A lot of the time actors just get stuck because they don’t know what to do next. And that’s where I come in. I want you to win in the business of acting. I want you to stop getting in your own way, and start enjoying success like you’ve never had before.
Actors have a hard enough time as it is. Don’t make it any harder for yourself. Get a mentor (doesn’t even have to be me) to support you, guide you, and help you elevate your career to take it to the next level.
