CRUNCHY I'M NOT AN IDIOT
Where are you from? Where did you grow up?
I'm a Geelong girl currently living in St Kilda!
How did you get into dancing and/or performing?
I can't remember a time that I wasn't performing! I've been dancing on and off since age 5 and acting since age 8. Musical theatre was obviously the next step and I've never looked back!
What's your favourite/best performance you've been involved in? Any other highlights?
Playing one of my dream roles Olive Ostrovsky in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is pretty unbeatable, and I got to do it twice! First with Camberwell Grammarian's Theatre Company, and then in my professional debut with Vic Theatre Company at MTC. Other highlights include Bombalurina in Cats and Cosette in Les Miserables, both with Footlight Productions.
What's your experience with Attitude been like in the past?
I've only ever been involved in Attitude shows in the past as a singer! So I'm very excited to dust off my dancing shoes.
Where have you studied?
I haven't studied dance but I did spend four years with Parallax Dance Company which has definitely molded me into the dancer I am today (even though I'm probably a little rusty!) I'm also currently studying acting part time at 16th Street.
What do you do for work?
Before I came to my senses and realised I wanted to perform for a career, I decided I would have a 'real' job and I became an accountant. I'm still working as an accountant, but part-time now so I can pursue my acting career.
What are your interests outside of dance?
The other performing arts, acting and singing. And if I ever have free time you'll probably find me playing a video game!
What inspires you?
People that are passionate about art.
Tell us some fun facts about you:
I used to write horror RPG's on IMDB message boards.
If it's possible to get 100% on a video game I will not stop playing until I've got 100%.
I have a white albino bunny named Barney that I've somehow managed to keep alive for a year.
