    About me

    An experienced, versatile stage and screen actor and musician. Experienced in a variety of styles including Naturalism, Promenade, Physical Theatre. I am 25 years old with a playing age of up to 33, although I have played much older in less naturalistic pieces. I enjoy telling important Human stories and relish the chance to take part in work of depth and intelligence, be it comedy or drama. I place great value on researching and thoroughly exploring the personality and motivations behind any character I portray.

    I am a skilled character actor, and am able to imbue my characters with a sense of sincerity and intensity. I was part of the award-winning cast of Vertigo Theatre Productions' 'Watching Goldfish Suffocate', in which I played the antagonist 'Dave 2' to glowing reviews. I have also featured for Vertigo in other critically-acclaimed productions, including 2015's 'Last Dance' and 'Ascension' both of which were boundary-pushing pieces that opened to 5-star reviews. My theatre also includes a stint at the Greater Manchester Fringe Festival as part of the cast of 'Autopsy', a critically-acclaimed anthology piece that allowed me to display comedic prowess, playing a befuddled, well-meaning father of a newly-outed son.

    I am experienced in screen acting, having played an Undead Disciple in a speaking role in BBC Three's 'In The Flesh'. I featured in a comedic role in the student film 'Pretty Little Things', playing the insensitive boyfriend of the lead character, for which I received a very positive reaction.

    I am also a musician and singer; I am the singer in Manchester Glam-Punk band The Madding Crowd, with a 5-octave range, able to sing in Punk, Jazz, Rock, Pop, and Swing. I play Guitar and Mandolin at a high level and I play Piano at Grade 4 level. I am eager to explore as many styles as possible and am extremely adaptable, continually working hard to develop as a performer and expand my knowledge and abilities.

    I am currently looking for opportunities in film and television, preferably with expenses paid at the very least. Payment isn't necessarily the be all and end all though; I am trying to gain as much experience as I can and expand my portfolio, so any opportunity to showcase my versatility as an actor would be met with dedication and creativity.
