I am a recent (2013) graduate of Atlantic Acting School in New York City, where I was trained in Mamet and Macy's "Practical Aesthetics" actor training technique, as well as rigorous physical, vocal, speech and improvisation training. I have also completed a screen audition masterclass with Leigh Pickford at Maura Fay Casting, Sydney, as well as a screen masterclass with Faith Martin Casting, Sydney, and Pilot and Scene Work Masterclasses with Cinzia Coassin, and scene work for theatre Masterclass with Oleg Pupovac (Two Peas Productions).

Recent work includes: 'Victory Over the Sun' with Sydney Chamber Opera for the 20th Biennale of Sydney (2016), a film "Troy's Story: Earth Hour Project" for Sydney Institute Film Academy, "Dark Temptations" and "Deadly Women" for Beyond Productions (Discovery Channel), theatrical and live art performance for Underbelly Arts Festival, theatre festivals such as Verge Arts Festival (2009, 2012) and Sydney Mardi Gras (2012), a music video for Triple J Unearthed and NIDA (2011), Voice over work for ABC Radio National's "Life Matters" (2011) and repertory theatre work for Sydney University Drama Society (2008-2012).

I am also interested in creating my own work for theatre and interactive performance, and have had some experience in direction and ensemble-based devising for theatre, as well as writing for theatre. Recent self-produced work includes a comedy adaptation of Marivaux's farce 'L'ile des Esclaves' - 'Great Island' at 107 Projects under my own company, Beside Ourselves Collective, directed by Pierce Wilcox (2015).

I have regular Voice Over work with Spineless Wonders Publishing, at their monthly live short story event, "Little Fictions at Knox St Bar", including "Microlit" Recordings for installations at Writers Festivals in Melbourne, Sydney and Newcastle.
