Professional Actor & Creative.
WELCOME TO MY ONLINE CV
I pride myself on my versatality as a performer.
I am dedicated to living a healthy, wealthy and balanced lifestyle. My ultimate goal is to inspire others to Live Their Dreams. I do this by being a positive role-model and living MY dream.
I am a very fast learner who is up to any sort of challenge, be it creatively or in my personal capacity. I enjoy trying out new healthy habits and one of my passions is making superfood smoothies. Living in a beautiful city like Cape Town enables me to feed off of its natural beauty, vibrance and diversity. Immersing myself in such an environment helps me maintain a healthy lifestyle and enables me to create opportunites for myself and those around me.
WHAT I'VE DONE
I am a bilingual actor (English & Afrikaans) based in Cape Town - born in Switzerland (while my parents studied there).
I have performed in festivals all across South Africa, Zimbabwe, the Czech Republic and the USA.
My diversity of experience has given me the ability to adapt to any form of creativity. I have performed in almost every genre and style: Shakespeare, dance theatre, musical theatre, stand-up comedy, physical theatre, drama.
I do Capoeria as a hobby which afforded me the opportunity to use these skills on the movie set of Honey 3 and a BMW advert. I am the co-writer and actor alongside Gantane Kusch in an award-winning play called"Die Glas Ennie Draad".
My one-man show Pay Back The Curry, has thus far been performed in 18 different venues. Pay Back The Curry is a politcal satire written by Mike Van Graan, directed by Rob Van Vuuren & produced by Siv Ngesi.
I am Wellness Warehouse Ambassador and a proud member of City Bowl Fitness.
WHAT I DO TO INSPIRE MY CREATIVITY
I love variety and get bored easily so I have developed different aspects to my life:
acting, writing, dancing, singing.
I am voice-over artist (with TongueTwisters), beat-boxer and musician. I play the guitar & the didgeridoo.

As a performer I use my body as the vessel for my creativity and allow anything and everything to inspire my creativity.
