    About me

    I am a dedicated and energetic young English actor based in South London.

    Having recently graduated from University for the Creative Arts with a BA (Hons) in Acting, I have trained extensively in both the stage and screen arts. During my studies I have worked on many exciting projects, including playing Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire directed by Gary Pillai, and as Macbeth in a production directed by Robin Pearce.

    ​My training includes intensive work on improvisation skills, physical theatre, a variety of accents, and devising my own theatre work. I has worked with a number of incredible directors, including Ellie Heydon, Steve North, James Buckingham, Hannah Joss and Nick Cohen.

    ​Having also enjoyed work as a part-time model, I have recently worked on shoots with documentary photographer Anna Fox and editorial photographer Poppy Marriott, as well as a promotional shoot for Doc Martens.
