It's no wonder that I love reading autobiographies; I'm obsessed with exploring the human psyche (I even have a Masters in Criminology) and I love getting lost in another person and temporarily escaping from myself. For me, acting is not to lying, acting is telling another person's truth.
I strive to cause insight, inspiration, laughter, solidarity and pathos through truth, integrity, virtuosity and fun in my story-telling; to be a portal between the personal and the universal.
I have been lucky enough to play a truly diverse range of roles on stage and screen, including starring as London-born lawyer “Michelle” in the psychological survival thriller 54 Days (distibuted by Grimm Entertainment, UK, Nominated Best Actress in a Feature Film @ Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema 2015); American psychiatrist and femme-fatale “Sam” in the Woody Allen-style indie feature The 33rd Wedding (Honorable Mention @ Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema 2016); French backpacker “Lauren” in the inspired European Arthouse Le Matinal (Winner Mary Austen Award for Outstanding Performance @ Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema 2016), womanizing “Charlie” trapped in a woman's body to teach him a lesson in Goodbye Charlie; the celestial fantasy of a dying gay man “The Angel” in Angels in America; “Mary, Queen of Scots” vying with Elizabeth I for her kingdom in Maria Stuart; “Helga, the baby” in Off-Broadway's Cabaret; and Italian firecracker “Sofia” in the soon-to-be-released classic romance Tendenza ad Amar.

A dual citizen of the U.S. and Australia, I graduated from AMDA in New York City and lived through the World Trade Centre attacks on September 11th, 2001. I continue to collect a number of techniques for my toolbox, along with many talents I use in service of my acting roles, including foreign languages, accents, singing, dancing, choreographing, fencing, writing, casting, directing, producing, experience in social work, legal work, counseling, being a mum and much more. I am a proud member of Equity, and core member of Women in Theatre and Screen (WITS).
No actor can do it on their own, so drop me a line and let's collaborate!
