    Additional Information

    Over the last 6 years I've toured the UK and Germany as a signed Indie-Folk singer/songwriter, both solo and as part of a band.

    About me

    I trained in Theatre at Dartington College of Arts. I'm an experienced Shakespeare stage actor, and BBC screen actor. I've also got experience of writing and directing, having adapted King Lear for a cast of two for the Edinburgh Fringe.

    Theatre devising, physical theatre/stylized performance, comedy, and film-making are also strings to my bow.

    I'm fit and reliable.
