    About me

    How do we make ourselves heard in a world where there are so many compelling and competing voices? This is my motivation to use the techniques required to follow a career in acting.

    Vying for audience attention whilst performing at Edinburgh Fringe made me realise how challenging it is to be heard and to perform under pressure. This experience fostered my belief, self-confidence and inner conviction to become an actor.

    My passion for the stage developed after performing Jim in Chatroom (Les Siege of Herons) to sell out performances at Edinburgh Fringe 2017. With Four Star reviews from West End Wilma, the show was seen as ‘a chilling representation of online bullying that leads to a final scene that’s hard to watch’.

    I have appeared in numerous horror shows as part of the award winning Scarefest attraction at Twin Lakes in Leicestershire, playing roles such as the Missing Child of Stilton Hall and Mother Pig in the Pie Factory and as the City Guard for Fire Hazard Productions London. I also feature in the TV Series Call it a Day ( pre production)

    Having trained in physical theatre at Fourth Monkey, I performed in their 2019 devising Clown season, appearing in ‘Heroes’ directed by Frank Wurzinger. My performances at Camden Fringe Cult Season 2019 include key roles as Simon and in the Ensemble in Witness and as Peter and the Reporter in Sannyas.

    Determined to develop my skills, I began another course at Yati (from September 2019) whilst attending numerous Master Classes and workshops at the Almeida, Frantic Assembly and Punch Drunk. I study Speech and Drama (LAMDA –Gold) and continue to work with The Reporters Academy on projects including the Student Games and NHS Youth Forums. With them I have learned the basics of film editing, production, and ‘live’ reporting. From these experiences I have developed an understanding of directing and ‘behind the scenes’, the importance of time keeping, flexibility and resilience while being positive and professional at all times.

    Through my involvement in drama, I have learned to respect myself and my work. I am not scared to stand up and be counted. I am motivated to learn and continually develop, even though it takes me outside of my comfort zone. Often referred to as a sponge by my directors and peers, I am told I take direction well and have successfully auditioned for an immersive production due to launch later this year. With professional experience in theatre, in groups and by myself, I always make sure to arrive at jobs prepared, on time and ready to work.

    I have a particular interest in media work , although love the buzz that comes from stage performances.
