Aspiring Transgender Actress
Like many transgender woman my original goal was to transition as quickly as possible and to live a quiet life in stealth 'Mission achieved' Many years on i realise i may not be living to my full potential, keeping a little quiet, out of sight incase i bring on suspicion to my history.
Now i'm older, more confident and hopefully wiser, i find myself living in a new time where we are seeing more and more transgender characters and celebrities in the media being portrayed positively and generally being accepted and i would love to be part of this exciting time and come out of the shadows and pursue my lifelong dream of becoming an actress.
I am an accomplished senior hair stylist with a background in hair and media make-up artistry for film, television and live events.
I began my career with a leading hair salon in the South West, before moving to London to train with the renowned Brush Stroke Make - up School at Shepperton and Twickenham Studios. My work experience includes various well known productions including The Bill and Last of the Summer Wine.
Interests & Hobbies
All things media and make-up.
In 2009 I acquired the organic hair brand Biorganics. It is a product I used early in my career and my passion for ethically sourced organic products led me back to it again in 2009. At the time of purchase it was a failing brand however I researched and developed new ingredients and at the time of sale was distributing internationally to professional salons across the World. In 2013 our Salon Secret Elixir Hair Care Oil was awarded The Janey Lee Grace Platinum Award for product innovation.
