ACTOR

After completing a BA in Psychology, I decided to focus on more creative studies of human behaviour, training at Actors Centre Australia under Dean Carey.  It’s here that, in addition to technical skills and stagecraft, I began to understand:

an actor’s job: a revelation of the human spirit.

Since then, I’ve had the fortune to work across theatre, film and television and alongside some brilliant cast and crew.  My acting credits include Winter, The SeagullAll SaintsCatharsisRichard IIIThe Golden AgeUpskirtOthelloSex, Sin: The CityA Lie of The MindViscaria and the award-winning short, The Filmmaker.  I’m thrilled to have worked worked with some of Australia’s finest directors, including Lynn Hegarty, Jean-Pierre Mignon, Darren Ashton, Gale Edwards, George Ogilvy and Ian Watson.   And I became especially well-loved by children for my portrayal of Fairy Dream (the fairy of hope, sweet dreams and way too much glitter) in the production Fairy Crystal & Friends.

With my Irish/Welsh heritage, I guess I was always going to have a love of words and stories, and over the years I’ve learnt how the power of language can make or break a moment.  This forms the basis of my storytelling – in both scripted and improvised realms, I always endeavour to bring my warmth, intelligence and sensitivity to the heart of any matter. I believe that powerful storytelling can inspire, educate, compel, heal… and it’s at the heart of any connection with your audience.

I can tell your story.
