Theatre credits include; The UK and Australian Tour of Bob The Builder, Hit Entertainment; The Kaos Dream, Kaos Theatre, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream in which she played Hermia, and many fringe productions.

Tina has worked on feature length screenplays and shorts for independent film companies around the UK.  She has written shorts, poetry and prose and is currently working on a new comedy web series.  Her favourite genres to write are sci-fi, dark comedy and drama.
