    About me

    I’m an international performing artist based in Lisbon. Trained as a method actor at East 15 Acting School, my interests lie in productions that are immersive, interdisciplinary and documentary, with strong visual components.

    I graduated with a BA in Community Theatre and besides working as a workshop facilitator in various settings, I also write and direct for performance that is politically and socially relevant to today.
