    About me

    I'm a versatile actor with a strong stage and screen presence, a natural RP accent and a resonant voice. Having done postgraduate studies in Shakespeare and studied Greek and Roman drama at University, I am very comfortable with classical theatre, but I've also worked with a lot of new writing and devised and improvised projects. I worked as a business consultant before becoming a full-time actor so I am very comfortable with corporate work and presenting.
