    I am an effervescent and hardworking young actor who graduated from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in 2017. I previously trained with the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain. I am also a writer and with the support of the Soho Theatre's Writers' Lab, 2017/18 I have produced a full length play about female sexuality and its intersections with folklore.

    I am working diligently to create my own opportunities and to forge new creative friendships. I would absolutely love to collaborate with more like-minded film makers and actors, so we stay supported and motivated during this often unstable and challenging stage of our careers. I am steadily building healthy and lasting relationships with the industry and accumulating solid professional experience on stage and screen. I am particularly interested in LGBTQ experience and gritty urban narratives, and have a huge appetite for crime drama, thrillers, psychological horror, queer dramaturgies and theatre/film as a medium for social and political change.
