    About me

    I trained on the MA Acting course at the Arts Educational Schools, London.

    ** Nominated for an OFF WEST END AWARD for Best female in a supporting role (Emilia in Othello, Riverside Studios) **

    Two recent U.K. tours for successful adaptations of Peter James’ crime thrillers.

    My professional experience gained through a successful child agency in Edinburgh enabled me to gain representation as a young adult in Scotland. This lead me to professional credits in TV, Theatre, Corporate films, roleplay and voice overs before deciding to train in a Masters. Since then I have continued to work extensively across all fields, most recently in CBBC’s Last Commanders and as a lead voice for Divinity Original Sin 2, a BAFTA-winning computer game.

    I am based between Edinburgh and London.
