I became an actor to be able to give people an escape from reality; a safe space where they can laugh, cry and be moved.

My ultimate dream would be to travel all over the world for my work, connecting with wonderful people and telling stories that I truly believe in!


Most of my work is for screen (films and series), but I also dabble in the occasional stage, singing and dancing performance. The three film niches that truly set my heart on fire are:

Fantasy-adventure stories; if I could live inside a Marvel-film, I would.

Arthouse/Neutral-realistic drama; true human stories that we can all relate to.

Horror; I love to act it, but am too scared to watch it.


With a multifaceted and international training background – throughout the UK, Europe and the USA; at schools such as RADA, Fourth Monkey and the Amsterdam Film School – I will be able to bring the connection, playfulness and professionalism that is needed for your project.

After starting my professional training in 2018, I am currently diving further into Method Acting, Chubbuck and Improv; I always try to find the game and the connection in the play!
