    About me

    To be a great performer you need dedication, enthusiasm and the sheer determination to succeed. Matched with practice and skill, you need to give your all too every opportunity you seize, from a years theatre tour to a days filming, from interactive puppetry to stilt walking, you must aim for the highest level of your ability, never straying in effort or patience. These are the goals I adhere to in my performances and in life, and I hope to bring all of these to your production, creating a work in which we both will be proud.
