Sandy is a Melbourne-based performer with experience across stage, radio, screen and singing. She is as capable playing the empathic and caring maternal figure as she is in her portrayal of the stern and defiant revolution leader. Sandy is at home with dramatic and nuanced performance, and equally as comfortable finding the right pitch with her comedic timing.
Screen work includes web series 2121 and feature film Mutt (2020 release) and a wide range of short film, TVC and music video projects. Her latest stage appearance was part of 2019 Melbourne Fringe – Our Father. Building on 20 years of swing dancing, Sandy trained and performed for a year with Swing Patrol’s all-girl solo Charleston dance troupe The Bluebelles.
Sandy maintains a connection to community through volunteer participation in the Equity Foundation’s Storyville program, exploring all manner of voices and characters reading weekly stories to primary school children. During Covid-19 ‘stay-at-home’, she created Choccy Bear Story Time for FB Live children’s story adventures: https://www.facebook.com/ChoccyBearStoryTime/
Furthering her training, in 2015 Sandy completed an intensive program at Atlantic Acting School in New York, with a follow-up 5-day intensive by visiting Atlantic teachers in Melbourne in 2016. She continues to build her knowledge and skill through regular training that has included physical theatre, stage combat, voiceover, US accent and TV presenting.
With a broad range of other work skills and knowledge, Sandy brings great depth and experience to creating full and alive performances.
