The most common question I get is ‘where are you from?’ …and the trouble is, I never know how to answer! I’ve got Russian parents (my dad being American at heart after spending 20+ years in LA), I was born in Budapest, then moved to France, then went to Italy and now live in London, but travel so much that I am rarely ever there!
The major upside to this rather wonderful and confusing childhood is the fact that I now feel at home no matter where I am in the world (and am a travel freak who will always have the next crazy experience planned!), not to mention the 4 languages I picked up along the way (English, Russian, French, Italian. Languages showreel found here).
I started modelling and acting at age 8 and have completed musical theatre courses as well as training in New York Film Academy and in Oxford. Whilst living in Milan and completing my fashion design degree, I focused on commercial work and found it very suitable for my looks and bubbly personality (be warned: I WILL rap and dance during any shoot!).
I came to London in 2011 and signed with my agents shortly after (Sandra Reynolds for print work and commercials, Reflections Agency for presenting). Clients for acting and modelling work since then have included eBay, Penguin Publishing, Sony, SoftOffice, Lenovo, Rush(Ron Howard film,2013), Sensodyne, UltraDex, Panadol, Contiki, Huggle, Agusta Westland, Dorchester Collection, Alcatel mobile, Select Specs, JOI, WunderBrow, Wella, Loreal, iStockphoto, Hoseasons, number 35, everything5pounds, Silk Road Boutique, Sacha James Bridal, Woona London, Echo Falls, Kunza Corsetorium and Lubatti Skincare. Some of these projects are displayed in my Portfolio.
I’ve also been published in the following magazines: Glamour (UK), EM (UK), WestCoast (UK), Digital SLR (UK), Elusive Dreams Magazine (UK), Runway Magazine (UK), Elegant Magazine (USA), Schuster (Germany), Kids World (Hungary) and Natalie (France).
I started hosting VIP events in 2016 and since then, presenting has become a love, a passion and a way to best express myself on camera (not to mention, a good excuse to talk a lot of nonsense!). Clients for presenting include Four Seasons Resort in Dubai, Cannes Film Festival, Monaco GP, PCR Awards, SoftOffice Launch, Sham Love Series Premier, WorldLabs, DCFix, CryptoAngels, Renovatio Ent, Russian Film Festival, InteractivePro, IELTS and XTrade. Have experience with autocue and am very good at learning lines (thanks, photographic memory!).
Live TV presenting experience includes a reoccurring fashion presenting role on QVC UK (1 hour live unscripted shows around 10 times a month), hosting 3 hour daily live shows on Swiss TV with no commercial breaks, as well as 2 hour live shows on Australian TV. A presenting showreel can be viewed here.
I have recently toured Germany, hosting 3 travel episodes for global channel TravelXP (aired January 2019) and have also lived in Africa for 7 months until mid 2018, presenting travel, wildlife and conservation TV series (a total of 3 TV shows and 47 episodes, airing in late 2019).
Nature and animals have always been a passion of mine, and having travelled the world for most of my life – this was indeed the perfect fit. An experience of a lifetime, to say the least and I am so thrilled to be sharing the complete projects with you soon, but for now, you can watch the trailers here or read my weekly blogs about filming in Africa here.
Hobbies include painting (have a vast collection of surrealist works that I consider my babies. Very sad, I know), dancing (in my kitchen when no one is watching), history (particularly fascinated with Yorks/ Tudors and am always reading the latest historical novel on that era), travelling and baking the best lemon drizzle cake you have ever had! #notjustaprettyface
