I graduated from London International School of Performance Art, LISPA, in 2011. Since, I have worked as an actress, assistant director and casting director on a variety of projects, and as a professional storyteller.

For me, the essence of theatre is the investigation of life through the creative moving body. This can take many forms and styles, I am excited and interested in the unique style that each theatre company develops. I founded Synaestheatre in 2013, inspired by Gehko, Theatre Ad Infinitum, Knee High and DV8. Most recently we crafted 'Raven', which played in August at the Space theatre to critical acclaim.

In Spring 2014 I produced and directed our first show at Brighton Fringe, also receiving 4 Stars, by Fringe Review. In Summer 2013 I performed at The Edinburgh Festival with Beaten Gold Theatre Company from Delhi, and at the Keochang International Festival of Theatre in Korea with Theatre Libre. Prior to that I worked on co-devised theatre in London and at the UK’s Summer Festivals both with ensembles and performing solo. In 2012 I directed a Youth Theatre project and was assistant director at The Battersea Arts Centre’s Home Grown Project.
