Acting experience

No previous acting experience

I have acted in emotive art films that were viewed by the general public on several occasions.
This helped me overcome personal challenges such as emotional acting and partial nudity.
I have also acted in my own short films, which were submitted for my university course in Video (Film making & Editing)


Extras experience

No previous extras experience

Beginner, starting out

I have done runway modelling in the form of hairdressing competitions open to the general public. I also have an extensive portfolio demonstrating different looks using wigs, costume and backdrops mainly in a gothic/alternative genre. I have also done some unpaid promotional work for an alternative clothing line and also for a photographer (Johnathon Creamer)'s personal portfolio. These photographs can be found on
