‘Everyman’ is my 3rd production at the National. It follows on from my performance in Tim Crouch’s, ‘An Oak Tree’ and Richard Bean’s ‘Great Britain’, which marked my debut for the National and also the West End.

I have also appeared in Giuseppe Tornatore’s film, ‘Deception (aka The Best Offer)’, 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 living in England, 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 traveled 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.
