I am an Actor, Teacher, Mathematician, and Musical Theatre Performer based in London, currently appearing in Hamilton: An American Musical as Peggy Schuyler/Maria Reynolds at the Victoria Palace Theatre in London's West End. I trained in Musical Theatre at the Royal Academy of Music and previously appeared in & Juliet at the Shaftesbury Theatre.
I currently teach Singing privately via Zoom, having previously taught at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). I also obtained my Licentiate of the Royal Academy of Music (LRAM) for teaching Singing and Musical Theatre.
I also work as a freelance Data Engineer and teach Data Analysis techniques and software training courses. Masterclasses include 'Data Storytelling' for the Analytics Institute Dublin. As a self-confessed nerd & Mathematics graduate from Imperial College London, I managed to link my love of science and music in my MSci dissertation. The research was on the use of feature selection techniques to improve prediction algorithms based on pattern recognition in pop melodies. I collaborated with Dr Cornelia Metzig on network construction algorithms used in folk songs and this research was later published in the peer-reviewed journal Pattern Recognition Letters: 'Classification of origin with feature selection and network construction in folk songs'.
Having grown up in Sri Lanka, I regularly return to Colombo and teach singing & musical theatre in the form of private lessons, masterclasses, and workshops.
I love to teach, and tutor privately in Maths, Science, and Computer Science from GCSE to university level. I also offer free tuition for kids from under-privileged backgrounds who cannot afford the individual help they need.
