About me

I am in love with the world of acting and have been since I was a child, when I was taken to watch shows in places such as the Unicorn theatre, and moved by films that I was too young to fully understand.

I was introduced to my first acting lessons at Sylvia Young Theatre School and whilst completing my degree in Psychology, I continued this training, part time at Identity Drama School before moving on to train at Central SchooI of Speech and Drama, and then to LA to master the world of 'The Method' and 'Meisner' approach.

I think it is important to continue training both through doing and by attending classes and I am able to utilise my skills that I have taken from my training in psychology to my understanding of the characters world and inner life.

I am interested in both film and theatre.

What I love about acting? The opportunity to make the directors art live and breathe.

My favourite directors? The ones that leave a stamp on their work and a stamp on me through their work; that allow me to experience their story through an uninhibited journey of expression that stays with me once the curtain closes or the screen turns black.
