    Additional Skills

    I can speak fluent French, am trained in swordsmanship and primitive survival skills like shelter-building, fire-making, water purification and plant identification. I am trained in scientific research and demonstration, and I have my driver's license.

    Additional Information

    Alan David, RADA course tutor and audition panellist, wrote a letter of recommendation on my behalf for the jury of RCS scholarships, and I was awarded one of the Conservatoire's bursaries.

    About me

    Before becoming an actor, I worked as a freelance botanist teaching about wild plant foraging and ethnobotany. I was awarded the Prize of the Fondation pour la Vocation for my work on the Navajo Indian Reservation, where I've been living part-time for the past ten years. I got my Master's Degree from the School for Advanced Research in Social Sciences in Paris, and then moved to the UK to pursue a career in performing arts when it became clear that science wasn't the way for me, and that my passion for acting, theatre, movies and stories was a life-driving force. I took classes at the Cours Clément in Paris, where I was part of the Avignon Festival company in 2019. I also took evening workshops at RADA, and auditioned to study at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where I was accepted into the ITAT course.

    Acting experience

    Regional theatre:

    In “The Marriage of Figaro” (2020, Avignon Festival Company, Cours Clément, directed by Onna Clairin) I played Count Almavia and Judge Brid’Oisons.

    In “Tartuffe” (2019, Ateliers de la Comédie, directed by Clément Barbier), I played Tartuffe.

    In “Little Red Riding Hood” (2019, Ateliers de la Comédie, directed by Clément Barbier) I played the Big Bad Wolf.

    Student short-movie:

    In "France Contrôle" (2019, Nikon "Shorts in two days" competition, directed by Corentin Chiron), I played "The brother".
