I am an actress, comedian, voice over artist and writer.  I am currently on the UK tour of The Gruffalo. I am also writing this year's pantomime Cinderella for the Oxford Playhouse.

In 2021 I co-wrote and starred in series one of The Adventures of the Juniper. 

In 2020 I was commissioned to write for BBC's Crackerjack, aired in March of that year. I was also short-listed for BBC's Caroline Aherne Character Comedy Bursary.

Between 2018-2021 I wrote and performed two solo character comedy shows Woman of the Year and Get Happy. My debut show was developed with Soho Theatre Young Company and BBC's James Cary (Miranda, Bluestone 42). These shows toured the UK, enjoyed sold out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe and were transferred to international festivals including New Zealand and Adelaide Fringe where I won a Best Comedy Award. 

I am originally from Newcastle, I trained at Mounvtiew and live in London.
