About Me

I am an actress, singer and acting coach. I was born and raised in Lithuania, but like most actors I have been living a nomadic life in different countries, soaking up all the great cultures and languages. I’m currently based in Barcelona.

As a thespian I love all mediums of storytelling.  My years of studies, taking part in world class workshops and a stage as well as screen presence drives me to share my experience with bright, emerging young performers. Therefore, in addition to my acting career I help aspiring actors to prepare for drama as well as film school entrance auditions or to give them guidance with text work, scene analysis, acting and acting through song skills.

See the outline of my experiences bellow.
