corporate & roleplay cv
Acting is my profession and my vocation.
Illumination of character and clear communication of words and intent are the currencies I trade in.
Over the last 10 years I have gained an incredible insight into how these skills, combined with improvisation, role-play, forum theatre, hot seating and many more, can vividly illustrate learning points and help make the abstract, tangible.
I enjoy employing the skills and techniques I have aquired as a communicator in the theatre and on screen to facilitate learning in other worlds.
