Born and raised in South Africa, I have always had an incredible passion for the arts
Whether acting out skits or singing in school choirs, my view on performing was telling a story that people could relate to.
My passion was realized at an early age when I was 9 and attended a Phantom of the Opera Musical. For the first time I was emotionally captivated by an actor on stage telling his sad story of merely wanting to be loved.
After high school, I worked for a year in Germany, in childcare. I was inspired by new cultures through my travels.
Now currently working in the USA, in the same childcare field, I have had the opportunity to immerse myself in new career opportunities.
I recently graduated from AMTC (Actors, Models and Talent for Christ) under the esteemed wisdom of Carey Lewis, whom has prepared thousands of rising talent to their new found careers in entertainment.
