I am a trained actor and singer, an acting tutor, and film producer. I am a STEM Ambassador, science geek and present science workshops to children aged 4+ across Scotland.
The topics I teach are:
- Acting & Performance

I run my own company through which I offer drama, acting, filmmaking and CSI workshops to children and adults. I have experience working with adults and young people with convictions.
I have a full, clean driving licence (gained in 1993) and have my own car - Babs - she is a convertible Nissan Micra and is awesome and can fit a child seat if required.

I am Enhanced Disclosed/PVG'd, police checked up to my armpits and am Emergency First Aid trained for humans, cats and dogs and registered to carry and administer Naloxone. I am also a Mental Health First Aider.

I have a Bsc (Hons) in Forensic Psychobiology and a CertHE in Forensic Science and am a qualified Chairing Member of the Children's Panel (legal tribunal in Scotland) and Chair Panels every month.

My Experience

I have been teaching acting and drama to children and young people since 1991, and adults since around 2000. I have been running filmmaking workshops for children since 2009 and am a STEM Ambassador on the STEM Network and also run forensic science and crime scene investigation workshops for children. I freelance as a science presenter and run science workshops across Scotland for ages 4+.

For 10 years, I was the lead vocalist and co-producer for the Twinkletrax record label and we released 5 nursery rhyme albums for children. I am co-Director and Producer for Shoogly Peg Productions, a film production company I run with my BAFTA-winning partner in crime.

In 2014 I started fostering cats and dogs out of emergency situations and in 2016 I set up Raw's Paws, a licensed home-boarding facility for cats and dogs. I only take paying clients when not fostering and so far have voluntarily fostered 32 furry beasts. I am in the process of completing Diplomas in Feline Behaviour and Psychology, and Canine Communication along with my Graduate training in Amichien® Bonding’, as created by Jan Fennell ‘The Dog Listener’.

Trained Equity* Ambassador and founder of the East of Scotland General Branch of Equity (2008) and elected Secretary until I resigned my post in 2015 to concentrate on my final year at Uni. The branch is still going strong and, in November 2016, I was elected to serve on Equity’s Online Branch committee.
