    Additional Skills

    I am a strong character actress in both comedy and dramatic roles. I also have a background in musical theatre and am keen to explore those skills again. I enjoy improvisational work and working on new texts and devising.

    About me

    After training and working in London I relocated back to Edinburgh and since then have worked in theatre, film and television performing in two sell out shows for The Actor's Kitchen in 'In Transit (5*), 2009 and 'The Memory of Water'(4*), 2011. Along with Siege Perilous Theatre Company in 'Standing Stanes'(4*) and 'One Elliot Park' (5*) both in 2012.

    In 2015 I played Natalie Donaldson in 'River City'.

    Last year heralded the launch of a new character led walking tour company 'The Reel Edinburgh Tour' (see website) which focusses on the city's cinematic connections. This tour was created by myself and a fellow actor with much support from the Edinburgh International Film Festival and Marketing Edinburgh and has received fantastic reviews.

    I am currently working on a solo piece which I hope to share in 2017.

    I am very much looking forward to the new and exciting challenges that lie ahead in 2016.
