About Me

Laying all my cards on the table, I didn’t immediately see acting as a career.  But after playing the recluse, bitter Miss Havisham and multi rolling in Brecht’s Fear and Misery of the Third Reich, my devotion for theatre has never waned. I have the honour of telling stories that deserve to be heard and stripping back to expose raw vulnerability. To perform, not only people's dreams and nightmares, but their realities; regardless of how seemingly trivial or profound. Three years at Solent University studying Acting and Performance have taught me to hone specific tools to achieve this to a high level.

Since beginning my undergraduate degree I’ve continually sought out opportunities to develop my career.

In 2018 I was part of the ensemble in the world premiere of The Shadow Factory written by Howard Brenton and directed by Sam Hodges at NST.  My successful performance resulted in me being recast in 2019, with the added responsibility of Voice Captain; this meant running warmups and rehearsals during the run of the show. This unforgettable experience taught me how to work alongside industry professionals and how to manage an intense rehearsal schedule. I have additionally accomplished Grade 8 in singing and Grade 5 in cello. These added skill sets enable me to stand out and will allow me to audition for theatre companies that include live music in their productions.
