    About me

    I am an all round performer trained in acting, dance, voice and modelling.

    I have experience on stage (including London's West End) and in a number of short films (in lead and support roles). I have done several commercial print modelling roles and walked at New York Fashion Week.

    I am enthusiastic, very hard working and take direction well. I am versatile and can perform in many styles, characters, looks and accents. I enjoy developing characters and bringing them to life. I have trained locally, in London and in the US. I have an excellent support network and can take advantage of opportunities all over the country at any time. I am also able to relocate if necessary.

    I am registered on Spotlight www.spotlight.com/interactive/cv/ **contact removed**
