After reading English at Manchester University, Tamsin began her career with BBC Radio Drama. She then worked as a radio producer in the Independent sector, before going freelance. She has extensive radio production experience – specialising in plays, readings and arts features.  She is in great demand as a producer and director of audio books for major publishing houses, working with some of the finest writers and actors in the country. She is a skilled abridger and an experienced script editor.

Tamsin lectures and directs at several leading drama schools, primarily at LAMDA and RADA (where she is an Academy Associate Teacher).  She coaches teams for the BBC Carleton Hobbs Radio Drama Bursary, with considerable success, and coached the winner of the Hobson’s Voiceover Prize 2009. She holds a Post Graduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education: Theatre & Performing Arts from the Rose Bruford College of Theatre & Performance, and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Tamsin started her singing career as the ‘tall’ half of cabaret duo ‘The Song and the Short and the Tall’, but soon crossed over into jazz, playing at key London jazz venues with some of the best musicians in the country.  She has recorded her own album 'Under Your Spell' and also writes lyrics for fellow jazz singers, including Gabrielle Ducomble, Mark Jennett and Gill Cook.

She is a successful lyricist/librettist, with works commissioned by English National Opera, The Royal Opera House, Tete a Tete Contemporary Opera Festival, virtuoso choral group The Shout, and Stavanger 2008 European Capital of Culture.  Composers she has written with include Orlando Gough, John Webb, Evangelia Rigaki, David Knotts, Cheryl Frances Hoad, Pete Latenka, Kerry Andrew, Sxip Shirey, Bill Ryder-Jones, Scott Stroman and Bishi.
