MY PHILOSOPHY

Hello, I am what I call a ‘cradle creative’. My professional actor parents operated an extraordinary artistic heartbeat at the centre of our family life.

I had a formative education mainly in the UK, Ireland (Connemara) and France (Paris); also working abroad in Italy (Rome) and Spain (Ibiza). I learnt independence early, embraced a self-starting outlook, knowing nothing should ever go to waste.

A returned actor in the last few years; my sabbatical time from the industry took me on some amazing adventures, experiencing other wonderful career moments, and meeting extraordinary people – especially while working as an editor/journalist and in the human rights arena.

All these experiences have ‘fuel-injected’ my creative actor life and given me a rich hand to play.
