Welcome to my website! Thanks for stopping by.

I am an actress, comedian, voice over artist and writer.  I am originally from Newcastle upon Tyne. I trained at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, graduating with a MA in Acting in 2012. I specialise in comedy and playing multiple characters. I have performed across the UK and internationally.

In 2020 I received my first TV commission and wrote a sketch for BBC's Crackerjack. I was long-listed for BBC Writers room comedy room and was in the top 3% for the BBC's Caroline Aherne Bursary for character comedians.

I have written two solo character comedy shows. My debut show Woman of the Year was developed with James Cary (Bluestone 42, Miranda) and the Soho Theatre. I took this show on a UK tour, to Brighton Fringe, Edinburgh Fringe and Adelaide Fringe where it won a Best Comedy award. 

I recently returned from touring my second show Get Happy and Woman of the Year to international festivals including Adelaide Fringe again and the New Zealand Fringe.
