Born and raised on the east of South Africa I was fortunate enough to spend my childhood; swimming in the Indian Ocean (without Jaws - he was from Cape Town), enjoying the diversity of cultures and cuisines and discovering my passion for storytelling, my first acting role being an over the top Octopus, naturally.

Being apart of a family that optimises the 'go-getter' attitude has shaped the women I am today. There is never an end line but rather a constant moving post driving me forward and always wanting more. I am lucky enough to have my family, friends and a wonderful husband that support this constant chaos.   

After high school, where I excelled, I began studying Psychology and Law, only to discover very soon into this story I would rather play these roles than live them out. And so, I packed my bag and headed off to Johannesburg to study Acting at AFDA. Trading in the beautiful beaches for bumper to bumper traffic.    

My time at AFDA was an incredible journey of self exploration and growth, my studies included acting for theatre, television and film as well as writing for these mediums. After AFDA I enrolled at The Meisner Studio, and Loved it! 

Having won the Green card lottery I believe the universe has given me a ticket to achieve my dream of being a successful Actress and Producer in the States.
