    About me

    My time at university has convinced me that acting is the only career choice that would completely satisfy me. It was something which I pursued addictively, and which came to dominate my desires and ambitions for the future. The young, non-professional environment gave me the opportunity to appear in a broad range of roles and venues, and to work with completely different personalities. This background has presented many opportunities to use my body and my voice actively and energetically in completely different ways. I have also combined these performance skills with education, on a recent university theatre tour to Japan. In addition, I am a keen rugby player and I play the French horn.
