    Additional Information

    I'm currently looking for work in the theatre, television or film. I'm afraid due to covid-19 it is impossible to put a showreel together for a few more weeks, but I'm happy to submit a self-taped audition for your consideration.

    About me

    I fell in love with the art of storytelling at a very young age; always imagining myself as a performer on stage (and in front of a camera), as well as a writer.

    I trained as an actor in Cyprus, the Czech republic and the UK, having recently graduated with an MA in Acting (distinction). My novels are currently with an agent, and my short film, "Brushed", is currently in pre-production stages in Prague.

    I'm particularly interested in roles that explore the power of mind; its depths and fragility. I'm especially fond of Elizabethan/Jacobean texts, as well as Beckett, Chekhov, T. Williams.
