    Additional Skills

    I grew up overseas and was fortunate enough to recieve my primary and secondary education at a European school, as such I speak English, Spanish and French fluently as well as having basic Italian.

    About me

    I'm an aspiring theatre-maker who is creative, hard-working, and always eager to learn.

    I have a passion for all things theatrical and love the process and team-work involved in making a production come to life onstage.

    I enjoy the artistic and creative side of theatre including writing, designing, set building, prop making and more. Although I'm currently working mainly on my writing, I am eager to expand my skills in as many areas as possible; I believe it is very important for people in the industry to have an awareness of the responibilities and needs of every role.

    Most recently I have graduated from the University of York with a degree in Threatre: Writing, Directing and Performance. I have also written two productions that have been produced at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival both in 2018 an 2019.

    I have had work experience at The Royal Lyceum in Edinburgh as well as The Harlow Playhouse. I also volunteered at my local theatre whilst at university and took an active role in the dramatic societies on campus.

    In addition to this I have taken part in various theatre workshops - both as a student and as a member of the creative team alongside industry professionals.
