From an Irish/Welsh family, Emma spent her childhood between Australia and the UK before settling in Melbourne.  After a narrow escape from a career in law, she completed her Psychology degree before moving to Sydney to undertake The Journey at Actors Centre Australia (ACA).

Since graduating, Emma’s worked across theatre, film and television, including Winter, Doctor Doctor, The Seagull, All Saints, Catharsis, Richard III, The Golden Age, Upskirt, Othello, Sex, Sin: The City, and A Lie of The Mind.  She’s also had the privilege to work with directors such as Kriv Stenders, Lynn Hegarty, Jean-Pierre Mignon, Darren Ashton, Gale Edwards, George Ogilvy, Stuart Bowen, Ian Watson and Dean Carey.

From intimate audiences to international arenas, Emma’s curiosity about people forms the centre of her storytelling as she seeks to find the common threads of humanity that unite us.

As a presenter, Emma’s hosted over 3,000 of live, unscripted TV across Australia and New Zealand.  Honing her unique set of presenting skills in the unforgiving glare of live television enables Emma to craft entertaining, engaging and compelling stories, with immediacy and spontaneity.

Known for her warmth, intelligence and sensitivity, Emma is also the creator and host of Mama Me Time and The Red Shoes Podcasts, and can be heard as a voice artist on documentaries, audiobooks and national radio campaigns.

Away from the stage, a lifelong interest in meditation led Emma to pioneer Australia’s first relaxation classes for children back in 2006.  She’s also a portrait photographer at Your Inner Light Photography and mum to a spirited son.
