What else have I been up too… Well, you might have seen me before at the National, or on the West End in London, playing Wendy Klinkard in ‘Great Britain’. Or maybe in Giuseppe Tornatore’s film, ‘Deception (aka The Best Offer)’ appearing alongside Geoffrey Rush and in Ricky Gervais’ ‘Life’s Too Short’, the BBC’s, ‘Father Brown’, ‘Holby City’, ‘All The Small Things’ and ‘EastEnders’ and Channel 4’s, ‘Cast-offs’.

 
Born in Australia but now with an international career, I began as a dancer. Training in Australia with the Beryl Ellis Dance Studios (now Ultimate Dance) and then later the University of New South Wales.
 
In 1999 I made my début in Baz Luhrmann’s ‘Moulin Rouge’. Then travelled to England to study Shakespearean and Jacobean Theatre at LAMDA.
 
Years of acting internationally in Theatre, Film and Television have followed and occasionally l return to contemporary dance. I can now say I’ve worked with some the world’s leading dance innovators, Caroline Bowditch, Marc Brew, Sue Healey, John ‘cha cha’ O’Connell, Shaun Parker and Christina Tingskog. 

Whilst my work is heavily influenced by my own experiences of dwarfism,
disability, gender, sexuality… etc.. No singular discourse defines my identity or my work.

I wish to break away from tightly defined concepts surrounding the sort of work people "like me" make or should be making and who we should be making it for....
