Unscripted. No delay, no commercial breaks. No way out.
Some people’s greatest fear is Emma’s daily life on set. It’s an exposing and unforgiving format, and Emma has – with close to 2,000 hours of live TV under her belt – honed her craft: creating entertaining, engaging and compelling stories.
From a Celtic background, Emma now calls Australia home. And as a highly regarded actor, presenter and voice artist, Emma’s credits span film, theatre and television – both nationally and internationally.
Emma understands the power of words to make or break a moment. With her training in Psychology & Drama – plus her teaching background – she’s equally adept in scripted and improvised realms of story-telling, bringing her articulate warmth, intelligence and sensitivity to the heart of any matter.
Emma’s acting credits include Winter, The Seagull, All Saints, Catharsis, Richard III, The Golden Age, Upskirt, Othello, Sex, Sin: The City, A Lie of The Mind, Viscaria and the award-winning short, The Filmmaker.
She is especially well-loved by children for her portrayal of Fairy Dream (the fairy of hope, sweet dreams and way too much glitter) in the production Fairy Crystal & Friends. Emma is also fortunate to have worked with some of Australia’s finest directors, including Lynn Hegarty, Jean-Pierre Mignon, Darren Ashton, Gale Edwards, George Ogilvy, Ian Watson & Dean Carey.
From intimate audiences to international arenas, Emma’s curiosity about people and places forms the centre of her story-telling. This approach has brought her many opportunities: with global media corporations, international live broadcasts, roadshows, narration, voxpops, interviews, lifestyle editorials, professional development programs and e-learning.
She’s had the privilege of interviewing people from all walks of life – inventors, award-winning designers, CEOs, scientists, musicians, photographers, parents and health experts – and finds the common thread of humanity that unites us all.
Emma understands that good business needs good relationships, and good relationships need great communication. Powerful story-telling can inspire, educate, compel, heal… and it’s at the heart of any connection with your audience.
Over the past seven years, Emma has hosted TVSN, appearing live across Australia and New Zealand every week, specialising in health, lifestyle, design and photography. She has also written for a number of publications including The Sydney Morning Herald and Kids Health & Wellbeing Magazine.
As a voice artist, Emma brings stories to life for documentaries, audioboooks, radio advertisements, and television promotions.
Emma also writes, produces and presents The Red Shoes Podcast, sharing stories and conversations about whole-hearted living.
And although she plays piano pretty well… her beloved pineapple ukulele is still a work in progress.
