I moved to New Zealand last year to pursue my acting career, and have had a range of acting jobs, including a play, Pirates vs Ninjas, where I played Steve the Ninja, 2 commercials, Countdown & Thin Lizzy, a range of modelling gigs and most recently I have been working on a Virtual Reality Training App for doctors working within the WDHB. Prior to that I worked as a nurse on Shortland Street in a minor role, and have had a few other small TV credits back in the UK including Close to the Edge and Full English Breakfast.

I also worked a 6 month season in Greece and Cyprus as a Hotel Entertainer, which involved running the daytime activities and then hosting the evening entertainment, as well as performing as a dancer in the dance shows 3 nights a week.

I graduated with a Drama degree from Greenwich University, where I performed in Attempts on Her Life as my showcase. Before that I trained for 4 years in Performing Arts specialising in acting at the renowned Jellicoe Theatre in Bournemouth, where I was taught by playwright Andrew Muir, amongst many other great lecturers. I have also been receiving dance training in ballet, tap, modern and jazz to improve my dance, movement and physical theatre skills.

During training I have performed in a number of great roles, including Cecile, in Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Joan in KneeHigh's adaption of Cymbeline and a caricature of myself in Andrew Muir's Damascus, which he wrote for my class in my final year at The Jellicoe. I have also performed in several professional pantomimes as a dancer, as well as performing in number of dance shows over the years.

Modeling

Part-time model - paid commercial work


I have had the pleasure of working with some great photographers around Auckland over the past year in a range of genres, from nude, to boudoir, to family suitable shoots.

TV & Reality

I was on the X Factor in 2006 - potentially not my proudest moment, as Simon Cowell didn't make us look amazing on national TV, but I loved every minute of it.

I worked a 6 month contract with TMC in 2014 as a Hotel Entertainer/Dancer in Greece and Cyprus. During the evenings we put on a variety of dance shows which I was fortunate enough to do in a variety of different hotels with a few different teams throughout Greece and Cyprus during the season. The job also included leading sessions in Aqua Aerobics, Aerobics & Stretching, running the sports program, performing kids discos and presenting the evening entertainment, including hosting quizzes, bingo in English & German and gameshows such as battle of the sexes and Name that Tune.

I trained with Footlight Dance Academy in ballet, tap and modern, as well performing in a number of their dance shows and as a dancer in professional Pantomimes at the Tivoli Theatre with Ron Martin Productions. I also filmed a contemporary dance piece after making it through auditions for a media studies filmed piece at University.

I also worked as an entertainer/dancer in Mallorca and have performed in a number of dance shows in Iberostar Hotels across the island.
