In highschool I was in the Shakespeare Club and for our reenactment of a scene from 'The Merry Wives of Windsor' we received an award. Aside from this I played minor characters in highschool productions, often being involved in the choir and dancing portions. I think I would have been able to get a bigger part, if I had of been confident enough to audition. More recently, in 2016, I was a main character in a silent Japanese-inspired play as part of the Hamilton Fringe Festival. This was a wonderful experience and I received great praise. Also on October 31st of 2016 I was a contestant in 'Miss Cadaver'. For this, my partner of the time was to be a mad scientist and I was his companion, mind controlled to kill people. On November the 3rd my band the Goth and the Pixie released an album and as part of the album launch I angrily dragged and pushed one of the opening acts onto the stage, screaming and yelling. I like to bring theatre into my music performances.

My NZ based band the Goth and the Pixie have opened for notable bands Former Friends of Young Americans (USA), Ted Dansen With Wolves (Syd, Aus), Whitney Flynn of Days n Daze (USA), the Mermaidens (Wtn), Albi and the Wolves (Akl), Coral (Ham) and Looking for Alaska (Ham). We have recently released an album, Bag of Ants, which is available on Bandcamp.
I have also been involved in Whisky Dram (Mel, Aus), Closet Octopus (Ham, NZ), and the Nobody Girls (Ham, NZ). I have performed with talented musicians James Hickey (Adelaide, Aus), Pepper Jane (Qld, Aus), and Aorangi (Ham, NZ).
I have done session work of vocals and violin for Coral (Ham, NZ), Reece Gielan (Ham, NZ), and Aorangi (Ham, NZ).

I have been performing from an early age as both of my parents are musicians and my mother would bring me onto stage with her to do vocal harmonies. My dad had his own home studio and often recorded me singing or playing violin onto his original songs. I have been playing violin since I was four but am mostly self taught. I improvise and play by ear. I began performing guitar, singing and jamming on violin at open mics when I was 18 and have since been in several bands in New Zealand and Australia. When I perform as a solo artist I play guitar or ukelele and sing, but with other bands I usually play violin and sing. I love to harmonise.

Film & Stage Crew

I have often helped out on shows that I am in to put together sets, change sets between scenes, and with audio.
