I have been a lead in a music video in Melbourne, there were no lines but I had to act opposite an experienced actor and learn to take direction and convey emotion without a script. This was for "Clone B" a band from Adelaide.

I also appeared in a music video for "The Sonny Textures" Melbourne D.J's dancing Latin American.

I had the lead female role in a short film called "Un Instante" for the Victorian College of the Arts Film and Television School. I had to act and dance tango in this film. This film won first prize and was shown at Federation Square in Melbourne.

I have also acted in Musical Theatre shows, such as Jesus Christ Superstar and The Merry Widow.

I worked on Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines based in Miami, and I had to perform in the Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre as a gypsy, this had a lot of script and improv.

Also with Royal Caribbean I sang (in American accent) as Miss Mezzeppa from Gypsy, and I had a speaking role in Chicago (also American accent)

Modeling

Modeling experience

Beginner, starting out


I have had experience modeling in TFP shoots, promotional work, and for various dance shows that I have been in.
I would like to gain more experience in modeling, I am also interested in doing parts modeling for hands, legs, etc.

I have been a model for a hairdresser in Melbourne and we have won two different shows together. My hair is easy to work with, very long and not too thick.

I have also modeled for dance/movement shots, I enjoy doing these as it is part of the industry that I am in, and I have been told that I am a good model to work with because of my dance experience.
