    My interests

    Theatre - Whilst performing is my greatest passion, watching from the audience is something incredible. I adore going to the theatre, there really are no words to describe the feeling when you watch something truly beautiful, with actors telling the utmost truth and leaving all their emotions on the stage.

    Staying Fit and Healthy - This isn’t so much an interest of mine, more a way of life. I see it as vital for feeling grounded, content and to work and act well. I make sure I eat well and also exercise regularly. I am a keen cyclist and runner - regularly running races, and completing the NYC Marathon 2015, raising $2600 for the NY Kids Charity.

    Other main interests include Film, Music, Literature, Art, Nature - I love to explore!

    About me

    In December I gained a distinction from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, in their Acting for Screen MA. Prior to that I had been working proffessionally in London and New York, mostly in theatre. I trained in New York at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and in 2016 decided I would return to London to pursue my career in my home country.

    Along with acting and my love of performance, I am very interested in film production and last month produced my second short film 'Waiting'.
