Aspiring tv presenter, with a passion for fashion, beauty and music.
Born and raised in South Dublin, I am third in a family of 4 girls. (Yes 4 girls! It was certainly interesting growing up with only sisters and it was definitely very beneficial when it came to shoes, handbags, clothes and make up) From a very young age, acting has always been my first love. I was a very active child that enjoyed singing and dancing at any opportunity. While at primary school my parents enrolled me in speech and drama as an after school activity. By the time I finished secondary school, I had completed the Royal Academy of Music – Speech & Drama Grades 1-8.
I went on to do theatre studies at Inchicore college, where I received a Trinity Guildhall London Performance Diploma in Drama. During my time there, I gained valuable knowledge and experience as an actor and my confidence really began to grow. I was given diverse roles that required me to learn other dimensions of acting and to develop character building. I played roles in Core Productions – Shakespeare’s The Twelfth Knight, Crazy Jane and Annie and also The New Theatre’s productions of Bad Sunday, and One for Sorrow to name but a few. As an actor my interests began to grow and after college I completed an intense course with David Fox, Applied Art of Acting.
While my passion has always been drama and stage performance, I began to look into other areas where I could develop my skillset. With encouragement from friends, I decided to step outside of my comfort zone and in front of a camera to enter the new voices competition for the Smedia Awards. As part of the award, the winner was given the opportunity to do a 6-week internship in RTÉ. To my delight and total surprise, I won and began the internship in the summer of 2016. I had the amazing opportunity to work with many talented people in the RTÉ family. I received great advice and encouragement and really began to refine my skills as a presenter. I was fortunate to be part of the presenting team for RTÉ coverage of Electric Picnic and travelled to Holland where I hosted RTÉ coverage for the European Border Breaker Awards at the Eurosonic festival, MC by Jools Holland. My journey has taken a new path and I’m looking forward to see where it goes. Peace and love.
