ABOUT EMMA

Born to Irish & Welsh parents, Emma spent her childhood between Australia and the UK before settling in Melbourne.  After completing her degree in Psychology (with a narrow escape from a law career), she moved to Sydney to undertake The Journey at Actors Centre Australia (ACA).

Since graduating, Emma’s worked across theatre, film and television, including Winter, Doctor Doctor, The Seagull, All Saints, Catharsis, Richard III, The Golden Age, Upskirt, Othello, Sex, Sin: The City, and A Lie of The Mind.  She’s also had the privilege to work with directors such as Lynn Hegarty, Jean-Pierre Mignon, Darren Ashton, Gale Edwards, George Ogilvy, Ian Watson and Dean Carey.

As a presenter, Emma has hosted over 3,000 of live, unscripted TV across Australia and New Zealand – crafting entertaining, engaging and compelling stories – with immediacy and spontaneity.  Never was there a truer phrase: “The show must go on!”.

Known for her warmth, intelligence and sensitivity, Emma is also the creator and host of Mama Me Time and The Red Shoes Podcasts, and can be heard as a voice artist on documentaries, audiobooks and national radio campaigns.  A lifelong interest in meditation led Emma to pioneer Australia’s first relaxation classes for children back in 2008.  She’s also a portrait photographer and mum to one spirited soul.

From intimate audiences to international arenas, Emma’s curiosity about people forms the centre of her storytelling as she seeks to find the common threads of humanity that unite us.
