About Me

I am a hard working, reliable professional. Professionalism is of paramount importance to me and I like to apply my professionalism to all aspects of my career. Acting/presenting is a passion and a career. I am a perfectionist. I have always been interested in TV and Film. From a young age I dreamed of becoming a professional actor. Drama class was always my favorite subject. I am a people person and work well independently or as part of a team. I pride myself on being a friendly and approachable person with ultimate respect for others.
