Where are you from? Where did you grow up?
I grew up in smaller farming towns around Geelong, such as Winchelsea and Drysdale, so I would classify myself as a Geelong girl.

How did you get into dancing and/or performing?
My Nanna pretty much told me I was going to do ballet when I was 4. I had no choice. She danced semi-professionally so she was excited for me to do it. Luckly I loved it enough to keep going.

What's your favourite/best performance you've been involved in? Any other highlights?
Headcase was a huge moment for me. It was my first major role and it was such an amazing experience. It was a lot of hard work but it has left me with such an unforgettable experience. SIGNIFICANCE was also a major highlight. The untold story behind each piece is really incredible.

What's your experience with Attitude been like in the past?
I have nothing but love and affection for Attitude. Even when I felt like I have not been able to do productions due to life getting in the way, Xave always finds a way of making me included in whatever way he can.

Where have you studied?
I studied at Sandra Clack Ballet Centre until I was about 8, then studied at Geelong Ballet Centre until I was 15. I currently study at The Loft Dance and Yoga Centre doing classical ballet with Miss Anne, everybody's favourite ballet teacher.

What do you do for work?
I work as one of the cafe managers at Annie's Provedore. It is a quaint little cafe with amazing produce. I get paid for talking to customers about my obsession with wine and cheese and make a lot of coffee, what more could I ask for?

What are your interests outside of dance?
I am a massive nerd, so I do a lot of gaming. I have participated in large scale board games and love video games. I also read about science and wine, and bake a lot of cakes in my spare time.
