Sarah (affectionately known as SMAC) begun dance at the age of 5 in Brisbane, Australia. She swiftly transitioned as the crying girl in the studio corner to an avid competitor in Jazz, Tap & Classical , training under the F.A.T.D syllabus (Wild Child Acting & Dance studios) receiving Honors with Distinction for all 24 exams.
Smac's performance debut took place in the family lounge-room. She frequented this venue with dance, sketch comedy and acrobatic routines. Yelp wasn't a big deal in the early 90's so unfortunately there are no raving reviews of these performances, but take my/hers/her mum's/probably no one else's word, she was pretty great. Smac toured these works to local garage sale events and school playgrounds, where she also provided dance lessons to fellow 9yr old peers in exchange for delicious lunch box treats that her Mum wouldn't allow her to eat at home.
Insert a good amount of years dedicated to competition dance and schoolwork, Sarah then switched her studies to Theatre Arts and Visual Arts in the International Baccalaureate program at the Queensland Academy for Creative Industries and later continuing her study at the Queensland University of Technology majoring in Fine Arts, Visual Art.
At this time she formed the comedy duo 'Mitch & Max' with friend Alexandra Mitchell. The duo entered the MICF Class Clowns competition with their musical slapstick routine making the finals representing Queensland. In 2009 Sarah wrote, directed and performed her first full length theatrical comedy (as Mitch & Max) titled 'LostInSpace.com', which featured at the 2High Arts Festival. Mitch & Max later performed children's comedy at the Out Of The Box Festival in 2010, where Smac also hosted the opening ceremony.
2007-2011 Smac was the featured soloist dancer in the Creative Generations State Schools Spectacular, co-choreographer and member of Velocity Dance Crew and cast in Harvest Rain Theatre Company's productions of High School Musical, Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar and Grease (QLD performing arts centre)
Recognized for her knack of youtube videography, Sarah was named winner of the online Sydney Opera House dance & choreography competition, Mymutation. (2010 Spring Dance Festival) and selected by Australian musical comedian, Tim Minchin, to cameo as his 'Dancing Bear' during his QLD solo tour.
2012, Sarah was cast as Astrid in the Dreamworks world tour production of How to Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular. HTTYD took Sarah across the globe, performing in over 35 cities across 5 countries.
Now based in Los Angeles, Sarah continues her work in acting, dance, modeling and stunts. Her credits include Dreamworks, Disney, Fear the Walking Dead, Kanye West, Fergie, Incubus, Nicki Minaj, and is featured in over 20 commercials including Google, Apple, OPTUS, Sleep Number, ASICS, Prius, Chyrslyer, American Apparel and more.
Sarah is also a published photographer and enjoys shooting fashion portraiture.
Amidst her career here in L.A, Sarah still finds time for lounge room sketch shows and creating inconsequential Youtube videos.
