    About me

    I am an actress from and currently based in Sheffield (South Yorkshire).

    Since discovering my love of performance, I have been privileged to play such varied and versatile roles ranging from Mary Queen of Scots to Puck, Aladdin to Annie Chapman and gossip hungry cleaners to drunken comedy pirates. This time has also given me experience of numerous performance mediums including theatre, touring, TIE, film, radio and experimental performance/ intermedia alongside valuable production experience in set construction and wardrobe/wigs.

    I also have interests and qualifications in creative writing (prose/poetry/script) and am interested in writing and directing in addition to performing. I am seeking to expand my experience and portfolio in all three disciplines.
