Kate's Profile

Experience Summary

My decision to change career direction after many years of academic research and teaching came after very careful consideration. Although I enjoyed working closely with students as an Anatomy Demonstrator and graduate supervisor, I became increasingly aware of a desire to fulfil my creative and performing talents and to explore new ventures. Thus, five years ago I embarked on a career as a freelance Voice Artist, Actor and Writer effectively converting my passion for the theatrical arts and voice work from a hobby to a livelihood. I am now enjoying the daily challenges that freelance work presents and I thrive on the varied and interesting work that comes my way. I always welcome the opportunity to meet new people from all sectors and with a lot of experience of field marketing, promotions, fundraising and mystery shopping, as well as six years experience as a professional Murder Mystery actor, I am keen to take on more and new challenges through Stuck For Staff’s dynamic agencies.
