All of my acting experience comes from my musical training. Throughout the course of my BTEC National Diploma at the BRIT School and during my Degree, I was required to act through song. My own music and performance shows much vulnerability and requires a connection with the words and meaning in each song.

I have also done much singing in gospel choirs, which have required on many occasions that I perform as if I am in connection with deity, overjoyed etc. Most recently, in fact, I performed with the London Community Gospel Choir on ITV's "Superstar", in which we were additionally giving roles as extras (market traders) on stage.

I am a 24 year old pianist and singer with a BMus in Commercial Music Performance and PGCE in Secondary Music. I have played the piano for 10 years, during which, I have achieved grade 8 piano; grade 5 theory and have continued to work professionally as an accompanist to choirs and vocal workshops.

I am also a singer/songwriter with much performance experience. Most prestigiously, I have performed in venues such as the Jazz Cafe, Ronnie Scotts, the Royal Albert Hall and Hackney Empire to name a few. As well as this, I have worked with the likes of Adele, Beverly Knight and the ACM Gospel Choir.

Aside from my work as a performer, I have spent the last year teaching singing at Stagecoach Primrose Hill. I currently teach students from ages 7 to 16. Prior to this position, I completed my PGCE year, achieving QTS.

I am an eclectic music listener and am able to play in most styles. I also have a particular and developing interest in the hispanic world, their music and language.
