I have always struggled with harnessing my capacity for strong emotions. After realising later in life that I am an empath (in a world that undervalues sensitivity), acting has helped me channel this ability rather than suppress it. I am able to genuinely absorb, feel and express the emotional responses of those around me. This conveniently includes the feelings of characters, whether real or imagined. Through this discovery, I have developed a strong desire to investigate the truth of the human condition.
I have been absolutely privileged to explore many challenging yet magnificent characters during my time at AFTT. This experience has included discovering the value of honour and the anguish inflicted by betrayal as The Earl of Warwick in Shakespeare’s Henry VI Part 3 (directed by Jill Brown), as well as enduring heartbreak and appreciating the unfaltering love of Sasha Ivanovna in the Chekhov classic, Play Without a Title (directed by Anthony Skuse).
Having also graduated from UTS with a Master of Media Arts and Production, I am enthusiastic about creating my own work, whether that be devising, writing or directing. I am also interested in interactive performance and multiplatform storytelling.
I proudly identify as a feminist, and care deeply about equality within the arts and entertainment industry.
My strengths as an actor include intelligence, depth, imagination and my amusing (albeit dry) wit. I am keen and ready to not only produce art, but to create magic.
