Growing up among the fields in Malta, speaking Maltese, learning English & picking up Italian via dubbed episodes of Pokémon, I spent a lot of time re-enacting scenes and mimicking accents from films.
As a teenager, I also learnt French, and worked online; creating graphics, web designing, and video editing.
I first worked as a Graphic and Web designer, before moving to London where I auditioned for drama schools, and have since taken acting classes at various institutions such as RADA, the Actor's Centre & Shakespeare's Globe.
I have also completed the Director's Foundation Certificate at Raindance and taken Screenwriting courses.
Most recently I have had the pleasure of debuting and performing my writing on the London stage.

Written as part of October's A Monologue A Month, Ella was inspired by a scene in the French New Wave Film, Vivre Sa Vie, where I wanted to explore and offer another perspective into how women actually talk about their bodies.

"I still don't understand how we know so much about the galaxies light-years away but so little about a woman's body."
"Mirror Mirror is this year's free and online project. Similar to our launch project back in 2020, through the use of monologues Mirror Mirror will explore the change in relations we have with fairy tales and fables now that we are older, wiser and understand their true meaning. Some of the work will be flipping the tale on its head, others will be exploring the aftermath of certain events and a few will be re-imagining the whole thing for a modern adult audience."
