    Additional Information

    Acting is my biggest passion from the moment I realised what I wanted. Even though I have faced many hardships in life like going completely broke, having to move into a tiny apartment with my brother and his girlfriend, sleeping on the couch and living out of a suitcase, I still felt lucky to have been able to achieve so much having so little to invest in my career.

    Had a chance to go to Hollywood and learn from the industry professionals like Constance Tillotson, Katt Shea, Terence Rotolo and Tim Storms where I am hoping to return to increase my skills once Covid is over. Was able to be on “Final Score” set, perform on stage in musicals, have speaking roles in short films, commercials, voice-overs and many more.

    These experiences helped me realise that if I want to be the actress I was born to be and if I want to achieve what I set out to achieve I need to change all aspects of my life. No matter how bad things were I always found a way to do what I love and work on my skills to be the best I can be.

    About me

    I have a wide variety of experience across stage and screen, a good work ethic and am able to immediately react and respond to instructions and directors feedback. I have the ability to immerse myself fully into the role and the moment, giving the character authenticity. I also have a good imagination and research skills to develop the characters' personality, physicality and vocal expressions to make a unique and organic performance. I have the confidence to ask questions to ensure that your character behaves, moves and responds correctly to each scene to match the directors' vision. I enjoy and have an interest in each department throughout the whole process, and enjoy engaging with the crews as much as possible to further understand their roles. This in turn helps to develop a better understanding and a more efficient way of navigating the set.

    Acting experience

    Screen acting- short films, infomercial, music videos, tv series, background on professional Hollywood productions. Have attended a course with Tim Storms on fighting techniques for the camera, vire work, low falls, tumbling. Have attended a course with Kat Shea for acting techniques for the screen, audition techniques, character preparation and performance for the screen. Attended class and an advice session with Constance Tillotson where I learned to do quality auditions, read in between the lines, use pauses and integrate my own life experiences into the performance. More so I continue to grow my skills with the help of Masterclasses from Dusty Hoffman and Natalie Portman, attending various webinars, seminars and classes.

    Stage acting- received Nationa Certificate in Acting and theatre performance at North East Scotland College (SCQF Level 6) where I learned and gained experience in stage performance, movement techniques, voice work, accent and dialect techniques, performance in front of an audience, character development using psychology and physicality.
