I'm Spotlight registered http://www.spotlight.com/6221-4537-9217 and enjoy working in feature films, training videos and television dramas. I get a real kick out being in the industry in general and hope that I can be a real bonus for your production.

I have massive live acting experience too, and regularly perform in Murder Mysteries and present shows aimed at younger audiences. I have a natural comedic ability and know how to bring out the best in people.. However I can do dark and dangerous very well, so don't let my delicate elegance fool you...


Extras experience

Previous speaking roles

I have years of extras experience, having been a featured SA in many films and television shows, as well as commercials and music videos.


Modeling experience

Part-time model - paid commercial work

Modelling website


I am an experienced model and actress having appeared in international publications since my early twenties, including several 'real woman' features including She magazine, Pick Me Up and It's Fate.. My petite hour glass figure, long legs and pre-raphaelite hair make me the natural choice for vintage and classical shoots. I'm friendly, outgoing and patient. I love working outdoors and am not averse to being humorous or bizarre if required. I enjoy character work too. I'm flexible, often being able to work at very short notice and don't take myself too seriously.

TV & Reality

I'm a versatile actress and presenter with a wide range of additional skills under my belt. These include high speed touch typing, children's entertainment, improv, comedy, crying on cue, dungeon skills and quick transformation.
