Sometimes I pretend to be other people with silly faces and weird voices. Sometimes I'm rather good at it.
Who am ya?
Hailing from Wolverhampton and graduating from Arts Ed in 2014, I've since been attempting to make people laugh (mainly as a form of therapy). Based in Kentish Town, I am found dabbling between acting for TV & Film and writing for screen and live sketch comedy.
I also work in TV as a script coordinator and ad-hoc as a script reader for multiple TV production companies, Funny Women Awards & Bafta Rocliffe.
Hobbies include: Never ironing clothes & Spin.
Talents include: An excellent Moaning Myrtle impression.
I'm always looking to collaborate with exciting and funny creatives, so get in touch!
Having trained for three years at Drama School, I can confirm I have never been asked to physicalise a sea creature since... I've had the opportunity to work with some amazing people on a variety of projects. You can check out my work below and some expensive photos of my face. Acting is fun. *Available to do more of this
I have a huge passion for amplifying female voices and narratives on screen.
Primarily having written and created mainly short form and sketch content, I am currently working on more long form ideas for TV, with the aim of working in a writers room and as a writer/performer on a show in the future.
