Biography: Born and bred in North Wales in 1963, I have been a Londoner since 1987, and still love the City with a passion. Secondary education was at Shrewsbury, and my degree was a BA Hons. in Film and Drama studies at Reading. In the intervening years, I have worked as an actor, computer analyst, tour manager, and in a variety tour guiding roles.
I currently have what is fashionably known as a 'portfolio' career, interspersing free-lance Blue-Badge work with part-time guiding at Shakespeares Globe and BBC Television Centre.
