I am a critically acclaimed and award winning actor and theatre maker. Originally Croatian-American, I grew up in London where I'm now based - after a not so brief eight year stint in New York. As a performer, I'm best known for my role as Grace in Lovefool - a sell out solo show from the Theatre National du Luxembourg - which has been nominated for Best Production in the Luxembourg Theatre Awards 2023, and has received two Offie Nominations*.
I founded the company Bound By Theatre in 2019. As creator and performer, her first piece, Ghislaine/Gabler won Best International Play at the United Solo Awards in NYC in 2022, and more recently Saint Hildegard was Offie Nominated after a Work in Progress sharing at VAULT Festival 2023.
I started physical theatre company krēants with two of my colleagues from the RADA Theatre Lab in 2021, and am a founding member of NYC based company Invulnerable Nothings, with whom I'll be collaborating on a one woman Hamlet in the Autumn. I have also worked as collaborator and performer with David Glass Ensemble, Maison Cartier, and am a lead in the soon to be released Bosnian feature film Ne Skreci sa Staze (When Santa was a Communist).
I have a BFA Honours in Acting from NYU Tisch School of the Arts, and an MA in Theatre Laboratory from RADA
