    About me

    I am actress, dancer and singer; graduate of the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. I have been fortunate to have a wide range of professional training, covering Musical Theatre, Film/TV, Contemporary Theatre, Classical/Restoration, Physical Theatre, Devising and more. I am passionate about all forms of storytelling, and particularly love highly physical projects, as I have a strong background in dance and movement. I also have experience in devising and performing choreography, and hold a second degree in Media and Communications - this has given me great insight and knowledge into the hard work that goes on behind the camera, alongside experience in Producing, Marketing and Editing/Filmmaking myself.

    I love flexing my creative muscles, meeting new like minded artists and collaborating to tell some exciting stories. I am looking to build on my skills thus far, and gain further experience in screen projects, as well as on stage.
