    Additional Information

    I have acted across many genres and coming from a drama teaching background, have a vast knowledge and understanding of contrasting performance disciplines/mediums, and how to effectively employ certain techniques to compliment the style of production/performance. 

    I have an expansive playing range, having two very distinctive looks when shaven and when with facial hair, as my headshots will demonstrate. I am able to capture a broad range of emotion, which my showreel material will hopefully demonstrate.

    About me

    I am a working class actor born and bred in Romford Essex. As a professional actor I have had a varied career to date, acting within Theatre, Independent film, TV, Radio, the corporate sector and even spent some time as a stand up comedian.

    I am an extremely versatile actor who possesses strong improvisational skills and the ability to act upon direction immediately.

    Some of my career highlights to date have been performing at the London Palladium in front of thousands, where I took on the role of Dan Short (a low life loan shark) in 'Strawberry Fields Forever', a musical based on The Beatles, performing in Whitechapel 1888, an immersive production where I played the notorious John McCarthy, the 1800's equivalent of Ronnie/Reggie Kray, an organ donation commercial released in cinemas across the country where I played a hapless speed dater and appearing in The Solution, a new comedy drama by Alex Kayode-Kay which has gone onto receive much critical acclaim on the independent film and TV circuit.

    Some of my most bizarre, but equally enjoyable roles to date have included voicing an angry Scottish Rooster for Single Muslims.Com, playing Satan himself in 'Crazy Horses' and acting as myself (which is perhaps his most difficult role to date) in an 'OWN YOUR TONE' campaign produced and distributed by Lad Bible and Pretty 52, raising awareness towards skin cancer.

    I am currently working on an exciting and socially poignant film 'The Street', where I am one of two leads. This film looks to explore and challenge systematic racism.

    I most enjoy more dramatic roles and will jump at the chance to play an antagonist. I want to expand my work within TV and film.
