I am a committed actor, passionate and dedicated to creating a career in screen and on the stage. Recently returned from a three-year stint in London I am enjoying reconnecting with the industry here. I like working with new people and challenging myself with different experiences.
I trained most recently at Meisner Melbourne, completing their Module One and Summer Intensive courses earlier this year. A graduate of the St Martins Performers Ensemble as well, I have performed lead, professional speaking roles in several short films, a mock TVC, corporate videos, a TV sitcom pilot and a TV drama. I like playing well-developed characters with emotional depth and sensitivity. I enjoy comedy too and am told I have good comedic timing!
Having done several voice-over projects and workshops I am keen to do more in that field and have begun taking voice classes.
I’ve performed in numerous stage productions in London and Australia and would love to bring more theatre into my life.
With a background in creative dance I am comfortable playing characters which require physicality and expressiveness as well as emotional sensitivity.
I love accents and majored in Linguistics at university. I’m comfortable performing with UK-southern, UK-RP (posh), UK-northern, French, US, US-Southern, Kiwi, German and Irish. I’m nearly there with Scottish, am working on Russian and am happy to work on an accent for a specific project.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
