Acting experience

Previous paid speaking roles

  • English

  • New Zealand

I have completed my ATCL Musical Theatre (solo) through Trinity Guildhall, London. I have finished my LTCL in Musical Theatre (performance) with Distinction. I perform regularly in Musical Theatre Productions and teach NCEA drama.
As a ballerina and Salsa dancer, I keep fit and love to encourage others to achieve their goals. I have recently achieved Grade 8 Vocals in Rock N Pop (Trinity College) with distinction. I am a singer and keyboardist, as well as violinist who loves to entertain then blend into the background at various functions.
I have been an actress and singer/dancer in many performances, including Fiddler on the Roof, 'Allo 'Allo, Les Miserables, Dirty Weekends, etc at the Playhouse Theatre.

I played the role of Vi Petty (and choreographer) in Buddy Holly 2010 at the Playhouse Theatre. I was on stage as the gypsy Violinist in the 'Valley of Dry Bones' Production 2013.

2017 I played the role of the heroin addict 'Maria' in the Centrestage production 'The Cross and the Switchblade' in Orewa, Auckland. This was a very fulfilling role in this original musical.

October 2017 I was a professional zombie at the popular theme park 'Rainbow's End' for 5 weekends!

Looking forward to the next adventure!

Modeling experience

Beginner, starting out

I won the title 'Miss Photogenic' in Waitakere City Beauty Pagent (including catwalk in swimwear, evening and casual wear), was chosen as the top 20 models in Westfield New Lynn and have also modelled a hair makeover for Rodney Wayne (Auckland).

'Gothic ballet' photo shoot,(Solomon T) as well as pilates/ ballet and gothic style shoot 2010 (Richard Leonard Photography). Completed a 'video portrait' (including live action - swim wear, ballet, belly dancing) with photographer Martin Caie at beginning of 2011.
Completed a photo shoot 2011 with 'Nix Cick Bang' Photography - for artistic ballet/violin images. Wonderful direction and connection with electric violin styles!! This also included some gothic wedding looks.

I completed another photo shoot at Piha 2013 - in swim wear, evening wear - artistic photos in a beach setting.

I keep myself fit and healthy, and flexible as part of my mentoring to younger this is a passion of mine.

Artistic photo shoots interest me - as my stage experience and Theatrical ideas seem to brim over for some great results!
