    About me

    Scottish actor & writer living in London.

    Completed Stage one - Emotional Connection of the Meisner Technique at salon: collective.

    My one man show, “Opportunity Knocks” fuses my poetry and autobiographical comedic anecdotes to explore what it’s like to be creative & struggling in London, a hopelessly romantic gay man who’s been unlucky in the search for love, as well as juggling volatile mental health. It’s been performed both in London and Glasgow over the past 6 months. Always looking for new opportunities to perform the piece in its entirety as well as shorter excerpts as it’s still a work in progress that is evolving and changing with time.

    “His one man Pandora’s box of a piece of theatre was searing, erudite, heart swelling and courageous. I’m still processing it but here’s a sparkling personality destined for the delectation of you all” @Philiphoneywell

    “A pure delight from start to finish. Dave is bottled sunshine who can speak to the darkness in us all with great delicacy and eloquence.” @emma_janemartin

    “He is honest, witty, charming and inspirational.” @emily_langham

    //

    I am passionate about storytelling and want to engage with work that has something to say, and the ability to really connect with audiences and make them feel less alone.

    I believe we often turn to art to see ourselves reflected back to us, therefore, it is my strong belief that representation matters. I want to help in amplifying marginalised voices, now more than ever. In any way I can, I’m really interested in working with new writers, especially with a focus on LGBTQ+ writers/narratives.
