5 years full time study and practice of acting, drama and performance. 2:1 degree in performance and A alevel in drama.

Appeared and featured in numerous shows, short films and site specific performances. Many lead roles and supporting roles. Experienced in numerous accents including all US and Irish.

Versatile actress. Highly experienced and devoted to naturalist acting and realism. Passionate about becoming another person and living their life, experiencing their experiences and giving their story to an audience emotionally, whether the role has been light and comedic, deeply emotional or psychotic and unnerving.

Very natural and experienced with comedy and always just as eager to play comic roles as well as those that are far deeper.
I am able to change my appearance and tone dramatically depending on the role I am cast and have therefore been able to play a massive range of ages.
I am also skilled and experienced in 'epic' styles of acting including clown-like performance such as the physical Commedia Dell'arte. Extremely physically able and experienced with physical theatre and dance.



Experienced with lead roles in films and live theatre such as well known Welsh director Sean Tuan John's 'Happiness Repeats Itself' - a site specific theatre/live camera show and film.

Developed and featured in the first trial production of directors The Clarks' 'My Prosthetic Soul. A Medical Musical'
