Notes

I'm an actress who has performed in various stage plays, musicals and film work. My background is predominantly in stage theatre, however, I am always open to learning new skills. I pride myself on the ability to pick up new areas of performance quickly such as choreography and vocal work. I have also worked behind the stage in areas such as wardrobe, and camera work. Before living in Wellington, I was studying in Hamilton towards my Bachelor of Arts double majoring in Theatre Studies and Screen and Media Studies. Because of my Sir Edmund Hillary Scholarship for Theatre at University, I was able to take time away from studies to perform professionally around Australia and New Zealand with Showcase Entertainment’s “Cat in The Hat.” I also performed in many community musical theatre productions including Les Miserables where I starred as Eponine, with the Hamilton Operatic Society. She has also been part of other community theatre pieces with Musikmakers Hamilton such as Spamalot and The Addams Family Musical where she played Wednesday Addams. My most recent role in a Feature Film exposed me to the world of screen acting and I have been invested in the entertainment industry ever since.
