Artist Story

I have been acting for as long as I can remember. I have always enjoyed the idea of pretending to be someone else.

There is something about exploring a character, whether on stage or on film. I usually sit down with a script and read through it and then spend as much time as I can exploring the different aspects of that character, developing their identity and creating a whole new person. I am good with voices and can do a lot of different accents. It is a lot of fun when you have a group of really skilled people and you are all inspiring others to try something new.

I think the performing arts is a really important artistic expression of who we are as a society. I appreciate all the support I have gotten from family, friends, spectators and funders. It is a really important part of my life.
